Winemaker's Notes

Very deep color gives a hint at the concentrated rich sweet cherry-like fruit in the nose. Big rich and mouthfilling, the flavors remind one of black cherry and currants. A wine with a good balance of oak, fruit and acidity in big yet elegant style. This Cabernet blend rounds out with 9% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot. It is a typical example of the types of flavors and quality of wine that can be expected from Dalla Valle year after year. A wine that will be around for quite a long time.

Critical Acclaim

"The 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon (88% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Merlot) is an opaque, deeply saturated, purple-colored wine with a super sweet, pure nose of black-cherries, cassis, minerals, and vanilla. The wine possesses exceptional richness, full body, ripe tannin, and a blockbuster finish."
94 Points

"Rich, earthy, minty style, with a touch of leathery bitterness and tannins that grip and hang on tightly. Deeply colored and concentrated. A bold, assertive style that definitely needs time."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
