Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with a small amount of Cabernet Franc and is aged in 50% to 60% new French oak barrels. This wine consistently exhibits impressive structure and velvety berry flavors vintage after vintage. The first vintage produced was in 1986. A classic Napa Valley Cabernet.

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

Consistently one of the great wines in Napa Valley, but often overlooked for the main stream wines like harlan bryant and colgin. I would take as much Maya for my cellar as it seems to be one of the only wines in the Napa Valley that will age appropriately for the price point.
