About Dalla Valle Vineyards
Dalla Valle Vineyards was the project of husband and wife duo Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle. The couple founded Dalla Valle in 1986, in the eastern hills of Oakville, a site which benefits from extended sun exposure and cooling gusts from the pacific. Sadly, Gustav passed away in 1995, leaving Naoko to continue their venture herself.

($140; just 450 cases produced) Good saturated ruby-red. Lively aromas of black raspberry, violet and minerals, lifted by a peppery vinosity. Very rich, smooth and suave, with flavors of black fruits, roast coffee and dark chocolate. Has a youthfully medicinal quality but a wonderfully seamless texture for the year. Finishes with very fine tannins.
