Dalla Valle

About Dalla Valle

Sitting in the eastern section of Oakville, the estate of Dalla Valle was founded in 1982 by Gustav and Naoko. Engaging an impressive list of winemakers and consultants such as Heidi Barrett, Mia Klein, Tony Soter, Philippe Melka, Michel Rolland and Andy Erickson, scores soon rocketed and Dalla Valle quickly attained cult status to become one of the most sought-after labels in California.

Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (6x75cl)

£978 - £1,076

2016

Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (6x75cl)

Vinous (97)

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is bright and punchy, with striking aromatic lift and energy. There is so much explosive power. Then again, that is pretty typical of these red soils and well-exposed sites in Oakville's eastern corridor. Today, the 2016 is supremely inviting, but it will be even better in another few years' time. Bright, bold and punchy, with tons of aromatic intensity and energy, the Cabernet dazzles from start to finish. Grace and power are rarely so compelling.

Dalla Valle Maya 2013 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (100)

The flagship wine, and one of the first in Napa Valley to emphasize the fabulous potential of Cabernet Franc in specific terroirs, is the 2013 Maya Proprietary Red Wine. This wine usually spends about 22 months in new oak and normally has anywhere from 45% to as much as 60% Cabernet Franc blended with the estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 could well be the finest they’ve made to date, and that includes a lot of profound wines. An incredibly complex nose of charcoal embers, blackberry and cassis, some blueberries as well as white flowers, and a touch of forest floor is followed by a full-bodied wine with sweet, well-integrated tannins, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that goes on for close to a minute. This is absolutely remarkable wine – powerful, dense, but at the sane time, precise and elegant. It’s hard to believe, but I think this wine can probably age and improve for 25-40 years. Don’t miss it if you have access to it.

Dalla Valle Maya 2015 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96-98)

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Maya Proprietary Red Wine opens with sweet plums, spice box and kirsch notes with nuances of vanillin, cocoa powder, dried herbs and loam. Medium to full-bodied, soft, approachable and very sexy even at this youthful stage, it has a long, perfumed finish. This was tasted as a barrel sample.

Dalla Valle Maya 2018 (3x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (100)

A smaller production cuvée from a single parcel of the estate vineyard, the 2018 Maya Proprietary Red Wine is the normal 60/40 split of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in a mix of new and used barrels. Incredibly perfumed with complex notes of blue fruits, flowers, loamy earth, graphite, and tobacco, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, polished, silky tannins, no hard edges, and a finish that won’t quit. While this is a rich, concentrated wine, it’s the complexity, elegance, and finesse that define this cuvée, which is going to benefit from just short-term cellaring and cruise for 2-3 decades.
