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.
94+ Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 1999
Very saturated dark ruby. Superripe but rather unforthcoming aromas of violet, blackberry and shoe polish; this rather inky, dense wine is in the process of shutting down. Remarkably sweet in the middle palate, with a ripe note of chocolate. Deeper-pitched than the '95. Finishes with slightly edgy tannins and superb persistence.
