Cut my hair and oh hell I’m Samson looking to Cali cab to be my strength and to be even more didactic I wanted quality, delicious Cab I could procure at my local grocery because in LA we don’t go out in anything more than a light drizzle. Fucking oh. Into this one. It’s solid and lush. Taste notes: goes well w classic bearnaise flavors which I stuck into a waffle but really? Make a protein of your choice and sip bearnaise on top and damn that’ll be good with a sip of cab. — a year ago
Our anniversary tradition- To Kalon
Enjoyed tasting rhones in paso all weekend, but it’s hard to beat to kalon cab. I think parker totally underrated this cab (92 pts?!). Spectator and enthusiast (who aren’t as inflated) gave it 94 and 97 respectively. I think this is a perfect time to drink this style of wine. Toasty oak, chocolate covered blackberry, licorice, some spice. Typical to kalon structure. Great, but not as amazing as the 2014 macauley to kalon cab franc (that’s probably my wine of 2018- easily top 3 in my life) — 10 months ago
Enjoyed while cleaning out the boss' cellar. Say what you want about this wine, but the one thing you can say is that this wine is incredibly consistent. This wine reminds me of the family uncle who always gives you some silver dollars at Christmas...even though you are now a grown adult. And if you actually listen to his crazy advice on investing when you were a kid, you just might be able to be that Uncle when you grow up. This wine is a thoroughbred. Meant to be consumed at least after 10 years. And this wine is in a really good spot. The nose does show a tiny bit of age as does the palate. This is front-loaded with slightly aged blackberry and a bit brambly. This wine smoothed out quite a bit over 3 hours. Finish with very nice integration, a hint of stiff oak tannin but a lot of it has resolved. Very enjoyable. This wine still has another 10 or 15 years left. — 10 months ago
Absolutely stunning Chilean Cab. Mesmerizingly balanced culmination of all things Cabernet. Definitely recommended, took aging extremely well. Perfect with Steak Romanesco — 10 months ago

Better late than never...visited Del Dotto Oakville Winery in November 2018. Piazza Del Dotto is a Beautiful property & all the best from Italy is showcased in the architecture.
Their 2016’s from Barrel were absolutely outstanding; perhaps Dave Del Dotto’s best yet! Buy em’ if you have the opportunity! Enjoy & Kudos!

Excellent wine. Way too young to open now, but I wouldn’t ever deny it. Excellent flavor but could be a lot better with about 10 years more. Pairs perfectly with bacon wrapped steak & frites. — 10 months ago
Delicious with steak tonight. Will it get better? Hard to imagine. — 10 months ago
Bitch, I’m back!!! Finally got to buy wine after being furloughed for a month. Decided to go with a familiar winemaker although I’ve never had the bourbon barrel aged Cabernet Sauvignon. Wow, was i pleased. Before I let it aerate to develop the flavors a chalkiness rested on my tongue for the finish. After letting it open up, blackberry and black currant flavors hit me. This is a juicy teddy jam, but not sweet at all. I definitely tasted the oak barrel making it rich and deep. The finish coats your mouth like your favorite winter blanket. I think I found my Valentine! — 10 months ago
