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 2009
($150; includes about 20% cabernet franc) Good medium ruby-red. Medicinal black cherry and licorice flavors are nicely lifted by a violet element. A suave, juicy midweight, with dark fruit, mineral and violet flavors complicated by a hint of truffle. Finishes with dusty tannins that avoid coming off as dry.
