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.
89 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 1999
Deep ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of blueberry and mint; distinctly greener and mintier than the last three samples. My sample showed a hint of varnish. Moderate sweetness and flavor development in the mouth; has good intensity but lacks real dimension. Slight hint of cooked fruit. Not up to previous bottles of this wine, and clearly the weakest vintage among this group.
