Vinous | Rating: 92The 2015 Collina Dalla Valle is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Naoko Dalla Valle. In 2015, the Collina is big, ample and voluptuous, with a bit more textural intensity than it often shows. Then again, that is 2015. Black cherry, plum, spice, menthol and lavender are all pushed forward. Open-knit and juicy, the 2015 will drink well upon release. Collina Dalla Valle remains one of the best values in artisan Napa Valley Cabernet.Drink Dates: 2020 - 2027Author: Antonio GalloniIssue: Mar 2018
