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.

Expert Reviews

92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Saturated ruby color. Less expressive nose of cassis and shoe polish; showed a deeply spicy character with aeration. Extremely dense and thick, but given clarity by sound acids. Really seamless texture. The fruit explodes on the back end, burying substantial, smooth tannins. The cabernet franc on this west-facing hillside is unusually large-scaled and powerful-ripe and floral but never herbaceous. Offers extraordinary potential.
