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.
88 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2005
(from young-vines cabernet sauvignon and other declassified juice; 100% cabernet sauvignon) Good medium ruby-red. Black raspberry and mocha on the nose, with a faintly medicinal aspect. Supple and fat on entry, with purple fruit and gamey notes, then distinctly drier and greener on the back end. Finishes with dusty tannins and a suggestion of leafiness, without the normal ripeness of this vintage.
