Del Dotto Vineyards
Region: Sonoma Coast
The sun rises each morning over the beautiful Cinghiale Vineyard showering the treasured Del Dotto Pinot Noir grapes with sunshine love. The vineyard is perfectly located in the newly appointed Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. And if that isn't special enough, this wine is never discounted and sold exclusively at the winery, except for this Cellar Angels offer.
A glass of this Pinot Noir tantalizes with its dark ruby red color. The elegance shows through as you taste and enjoy flavors of dark cherries, ripe strawberries and black plum. The substantial weight on the palate offers the essential earthiness with subtle herbal notes, and finishes with soft silky tannins.
“The irrepressible David Del Dotto continues to offer a flamboyant presence in Napa Valley, but there is no discounting just how impressive his wines can be.”
~ Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate.
"Wine is a reduction sauce. The barrel is the spice rack."
