Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

(from young-vines cabernet sauvignon and other declassified juice; 100% cabernet sauvignon) Good medium ruby-red. Black raspberry and mocha on the nose, with a faintly medicinal aspect. Supple and fat on entry, with purple fruit and gamey notes, then distinctly drier and greener on the back end. Finishes with dusty tannins and a suggestion of leafiness, without the normal ripeness of this vintage.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

There is a third selection called the Casa Dalla Valle. The 2002 is an outstanding wine, obviously meant for near-term drinking (in this case, over the next decade). It shows a deep ruby/purple color, nice, sweet creme de cassis fruit, a straightforward character, but outstanding richness, depth, and length.

About This Producer

From vineyards set 400 feet above the floor of Napa Valley, two critically-acclaimed powerhouse wines are crafted. Both the Cabernet Sauvignon (which includes just a touch of estate Cabernet Franc) and the Maya (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) showcase Oakville fruit in its most concentrated intensity. Production is limited to micro-quantities, making these wines sought-after prizes for collectors and wine enthusiasts alike.

Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle bought their family estate in 1982, realizing their vision of producing world-class wine. The first vintages were 1986 for the Cabernet and 1988 for the Maya, which went on to earn a perfect 100-point score from Robert Parker for the 1992 vintage. Naoko Dalla Valle has maintained sole responsibility for the vineyards and winery since her husband's death in 1995. French enologist Michel Rolland consults bi-annually on winemaking and blending decisions.
