LP96+ "A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored. Vibrant black cherry preserves, black raspberries, and creme de cassis scents jump from the glass, followed by hints of lilacs, licorice, and dark chocolate with a touch of clove oil. The medium to full-bodied palate has gorgeous, velvety tannins and seamless freshness supporting the generous black fruit layers, finishing long and perfumed." LPB for TWI Sep 2022

JD95 "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon includes slightly less Cabernet than normal and is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc. It has loads of cassis and black raspberry fruits as well as gorgeous incense, dried violets, vanilla, and flowery spice overtones. About as seamless as it gets, with full body and present yet sweet tannins, it’s a beautiful, elegant wine from this remarkable site sitting above Oakville." JD Jan 2019

"Like areas of Pritchard Hill, the land here is marked by protruding, often immovable boulders, and the soil is composed of a vibrant orange/red-colored iron-rich bedrock. Thus, although it is technically in the Oakville AVA, if I had to compare the signature style of Dalla Valle with any area of Napa, it is more closely linked to some of the great wines coming from Pritchard Hill—perhaps a hypothetical blend of Continuum and Ovid with a dollop of Bryant Family. And yet, Dalla Valle’s Cabernet Sauvignon and the flagship Maya label are unlike any of these, not just because of the property’s unique position but because of the individual vineyard and winemaking paths forged by Gustav, Naoko, and, most recently, their daughter Maya." LPB Sep 2022
