    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine consistently exhibits impressive structure and velvety berry flavors vintage after vintage. A classic Napa Valley Cabernet.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Two terrific wines from Dalla Valle, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc) from their hillside vineyards in Oakville, exhibits a dense purple color along with a beautifully sweet perfume of cedarwood, creme de cassis, incense and spice box. Full-bodied and rich with gorgeous purity and texture as well as a multidimensional mouthfeel, it still has some tannins to shed and tastes like it is only 4-5 years old. It has at least two decades of life ahead of it.

    What a treat. This is the quintessence of Oakville Cab, with an impressively firm structure, ripe tannins, smooth, supple mouthfeel and long, spicy finish. And what fruit! Scads of rich cassis, chocolate and oak, yet thoroughly dry.

    Bright ruby-red. Highly complex, expressive nose melds blueberry liqueur, black cherry, chocolate, coffee and cola. Densely packed, juicy and nuanced on the palate, with notes of cassis, bitter chocolate, leather and mint, all lifted by violet florality. Sharply delineated and powerfully structured wine, finishing with firm, toothcoating tannins. Perhaps more classic than the 2002, which features more early thickness and chewier tannins.

    Impressive for its core of rich, chewy currant, blackberry, wild berry and cedary oak flavors. It packs a wallop, too, with its dense, chewy tannins, but on the finish the fruit pours through to reveal lots of depth and complexity.
