Winemaker's Notes

Deep garnet color. Sweet ripe fruit jumps out of the glass. This is a quintessential example of Napa Cabernet. Impressive ripeness with hints of sweet cherries, plums, blackberries, kirsch, licorice and anise, vanilla, tar, and toast. Fresh, feminine, good tannins without being aggressive. Touch of camphor, and red and black fruits. Very exotic with layers of flavors. A seamless, harmonious wine with gripping tannins and a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The terrific 1995 Maya is cut from the same mold as all the great Mayas of this decade. Its tannin may be even riper than in the 1994, but the wine is still an unevolved, massive, and unformed giant, although it is obvious that this will be another legendary effort. Do readers ever wonder why wines such as these are never made in 100,000 case lots?
Range: 96-98"

"Dark, intense and deeply concentrated, with a sharp, tight beam of currant, blackberry and cherry, complex and spicy. The tannins are woven in, giving it seamless texture, and the finish pumps out lots of juicy fruit. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc."
95 Points

"Dark-ruby red. More brooding aromas of cassis, licorice, mint and spice. Huge and primal in the mouth, with great sweetness; comes across as suppler and thicker than the Napa bottling simply due to the wine's sheer size. But much less showy today. Finishes with firm tannins and powerful, expanding dark fruit flavors.
Rating: 95(+?)"

In 1983, Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle began planting vines on the hillside of Oakville, overlooking Napa valley. Their vineyards produce excellent quality grapes, resulting in wines of great intensity, complexity and balance. Gustav passed away in 1995 and Naoko Dalla Valle continues the legacy of Dalla Valle wines.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. 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...
