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.
94-97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Deep ruby-red. Floral aromas of blueberry and shoe polish; the 12% cabernet franc component is quite noticeable today. Velvety and sweet in the mouth, but lively acidity gives the fruit excellent delineation. Lovely depth of texture. Tannins are remarkably supple and ripe. Potentially the strongest Napa Valley bottling to date from this winery.
