On the, for me, ripe side but still with great balance.

I forgot I had this wine. It’s delicious, chewy, with long finish . I need to get more Del Dotto wines . It’s the good stuff.

A very smooth and well integrated wine despite its young age! Lots of french oak and luscious Cabernet married in a glass quite enjoyable!!

PNP-2015 Colbert French Oak “North/Front Block” 887 St. Helena Vineyard / Deep, dark, concentrated black & blue fruit, gobs of glycerin, upfront, mid & long finish; all the stuffing of great wine. Kudos again Del Dotto Family. Cheers 🍇🍷👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

For those that dismiss Del Dotto wines - think again! This wine was perfectly ready to drink immediately upon uncorking with a soft, warm vanilla oak surrounding mature dark fruit. The wine’s richness and balance were more like a Haut Brion than a young Napa cab! Still there are tannins that will soften in the cellar, so balance you temptation to empty your collection!

Del Dotto Vineyard 887, Missouri/French Oak, Connoisseurs Series, Front Block. Kicks out the jam. Excessive naming strategy.
