The 2016 Del Dotto 'The Beast' Cabernet Sauvignon is a barrel selection that sources from a host of great vineyards in four different Napa Valley AVAs. Inky and dark in the glass, followed by gorgoeus aromatics, currently displaying a remarkable level of complexity with crème de cassis, mocha, Turkish coffee, Asian spices, anise and a touch of toasty oak all soaring from the glass. The weight and mouthfeel to this wine is simply stunning with crème de cassis, mocha, anise, black tea, leather and black cherry cordial flavors all building on the palate. This displays a head-turning combination of concentration and depth with layer upon layer of ripe dark fruits which cascades on to the long finish makes it nearly impossible to resist right now. Intense and lively in its youth, and also looks as if it will have an extremely long life in the cellar.
