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.

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

Sharply delineated and powerfully structured wine, finishing with firm, toothcoating tannins. Perhaps more classic than the 2002, which features more early thickness and chewier tannins.
