External Reviews for Dalla Valle Cab
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a sumptuous bouquet of creme de cassis, earth, spice box, and hints of licorice as well as oak. Medium-bodied, moderately tannic, and pure with a European structural profile, it is accessible, but should age nicely ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Bright ruby-red. Wonderfully scented nose offers cassis, camphor, minerals, cocoa powder, licorice and rose petal. Juicy, spicy and pure, with terrific definition and cut to the flavors of currant, cherry and minerals. Finishes with firm tannic spine... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
(Barrel tasting) Elegant, with fine balance; pretty oak, but not too dominant, allowing the spicy currant, vanilla, blackberry and cedar notes plenty of room. Firmly tannic.
The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up sweet scents of raspberries, red currants, a touch of black fruits, spice, licorice, smoke, earth, and dried herbs. This attractive, medium-bodied, moderately tannic 2001 will benefit from another 1ndash;3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 10ndash;15.
The Cabernet Sauvignon in 2002 and 2003 both mirror the Maya, with the 2003 more ruggedly constructed, slightly more tannic, and bigger, but without the charm and near-term appeal of the more flamboyant, extroverted, silky-textured 2002. Both wines are capable of lasting 15 years. with the 2002 being drinkable immediately and 2003 needing 3ndash;4 years of bottle age.
