Overall Experience

We thought this Del Dotto Sonoma Coast from Del Dotto Vineyards was a great wine with ton of flavors yet well balanced. The finish had longer length to it which literally left a good taste in our mouth. We had this wine as a part of our cave tour at Del Dotto Winery in Napa Valley. What an awesome experience.

Winemakers Tasting Notes – From Del Dotto Winery

Fresh Citrus blossoms and toasty pan grille jump from the glass as more subtle notes of vanilla spice and light clove accent the aromas.  The seamless palate is nearly perfect from start to finish and can simply be described as delicious! This wine is wonderful in its youth but for those who can wait, it will age very nicely in the cellar for years to come.
