Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Charming, forward and approachable despite its youth. Ripe berries, mocha, toasted malt, incense and jasmine on the nose and palate. The sweet, high-toned nose is followed by a palate that nicely reflects the elegant refinement found year in and year out in our 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

(Barrel tasting) A ripe, grapey sample, offering pure currant and blackberry fruit and little in the way of oak at this stage. Tannins sneak up on the finish. Shows depth and complexity.

The deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of minerals, licorice, acacia flowers, blackberries, and cassis. Tannic, medium-bodied, and tightly-knit, with a long finish, potential buyers are forewarned that it will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.

Wonderful fruit purity, with floral, plum, grapey currant and black cherry, well-focused, with firm tannins.

Impressive for its core of rich, chewy currant, blackberry, wild berry and cedary oak flavors. It packs a wallop, too, with its dense, chewy tannins, but on the finish the fruit pours through to reveal lots of depth and complexity. Best from 2006 through 2013.

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 1-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 10-15.

What a treat. this is the quintessence of Oakville Cab, with an impressively firm structure, ripe tannins, smooth, supple mouthfeel and long, spicy finish. and what fruit! Scads of rich cassis, chocolate and oak, yet thoroughly dry. Drink now through 2012.

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 3-4 years of bottle age.
