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.

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($150) Full ruby-red. Expressive aromas of boysenberry, licorice and flowers complicated by a whiff of torrefaction. Juicy and fruit-driven, with lovely inner-mouth aromatic character and definition to the flavors of dark berries, violet and licorice. The floral quality carries through to the firmly tannic finish. The lowest-ever production for this bottling at 270 cases. Give this at least a few years to expand.
