Dalla Valle Cab 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Napa Valley 1996 93 Pts Robert Parker : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 93 POINTS The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, concentrated, dense ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied and muscular, it exhibits copious quantities of black currant fruit intermixed with blackberries, minerals, cedar, and Chinese black tea-like notes. The tannin is sweet, in a vintage where this component can be slightly coarse. It can be drunk now or aged for 25 years.

Dalla Valle Vineyards is a small, family-owned winery that was founded in 1986. The winery and vineyards are located on a plateau 400 feet above the valley floor, in the eastern hills of Oakville, Napa Valley. The combination of perfect sun exposure and the cooling marine influence from the Pacific Ocean make this an ideal site for world class winegrowing. Dalla Valle has reached an admirable level of acceptance in the last decade and produces some of the most sought out Cabernet Sauvignon and proprietary red wine in California. Wines made from Dalla Valle Vineyards are pure unbridled expressions of fruit at its most powerful and concentrated. These wines are of immense stature and richness with well-integrated tannin and acidity. Read less

Deep ruby. Slightly roasted, inky aromas of dark berries and licorice. Lush and very smooth in the middle palate, but currently a bit dominated by its underlying structure. Hiding more than it showing today. Tannins are substantial but quite velvety ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
