Estate Notes

Dalla Valle Vineyards' Maya 2013 is in excellent condition.

Dalla Valle Vineyards was established high above the Silverado Trail in Oakville by Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle in 1982, who were drawn to the ideal conditions for vine growing: long sunlight hours, a cooling marine influence and fertile volcanic soil. Michel Rolland is a consultant winemaker for the estate, whose wines, needless to say are on a waiting list.

“I don't think I need to reinforce the fact that these offerings are extremely difficult to find, but isn't that the way it always is with such extraordinary wines?…the stuff of legends. Life is too short not to drink a few bottles of Dalla Valle." Robert Parker

"The flagship wine, and one of the first in Napa Valley to emphasize the fabulous potential of Cabernet Franc in specific terroirs, is the 2013 Maya Proprietary Red Wine. TThe 2013 could well be the finest they’ve made to date, and that includes a lot of profound wines. An incredibly complex nose of charcoal embers, blackberry and cassis, some blueberries as well as white flowers, and a touch of forest floor is followed by a full-bodied wine with sweet, well-integrated tannins, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that goes on for close to a minute. This is absolutely remarkable wine – powerful, dense, but at the sane time, precise and elegant. It’s hard to believe, but I think this wine can probably age and improve for 25-40 years. Don’t miss it if you have access to it." Robert Parker
