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.

90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2003
($100) Good full ruby-red. Aromas of blackcurrant, violet, bitter chocolate, shoe polish and menthol. Juicy, slightly dry-edged flavors similar to the aromas. A bit dominated today by chocolatey oak. In a distinctly tougher style and firmly tannic today, but juicy on the back.
