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 1999
Deep ruby-purple. Profound but rather unforthcoming aromas of cassis and mint. Superripe and large-scaled yet vibrant and poised. Really uncanny intensity and clarity of flavor. Big tannins are ripe and chewy.
