One of the great wines in Napa Valley, the Villa Del Lago Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Del Dotto's 20-acre vineyard on Pritchard Hill where the soil compisition consists of rocks, clay and loam on the upper and lower slopes. The wine itself shines for its outstanding combination of concentration and elegance. The aromatics are gorgeous and highly perfumed with rose petals and black tea alongside crème de cassis and ripe dark fruits. Round and polished through the palate, the wine shows a wonderful elegance and terroir character with dark fruits parading with creme de cassis, roasted coffee, black tea and leather nuances. Complex and seductive this is shockingly good right now, but should also cellar marvelously.
