Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon
Arguably one of world’s most celebrated wine estates, Dalla Valle was founded in 1986 by Naoko and her late husband Gustav Dalla Valle, on the famed eastern hillsides of Oakville. Today, mother-and-daughter dynamic duo of Naoko and Maya guides Dalla Valle with a team of Winemaker Andy Erickson, Vineyard Manager Edgar Alfaro, and Consulting Winemaker Michel Rolland. 2016 estate Cabernet Sauvignon displays a pronounced bouquet of cassis, black cherries, and wild berries with a hint of cigar box and Christmas cake spices. The palate has layers of fruits and a touch of metallic. It is sexy and sensual, and firm yet fine tannins are unctuous.
