I LOVED this wine. Balance, finesse, structure, varietal character, everything, I'm talking everything was VERY, VERY GOOD. I couldn't find a flaw in the wine, but since no wine is a "100," and maybe this wine will go downhill in five more years instead of maintaining a plateau, I'm going with a 97. I am very happy I got to enjoy it. This is a Noble effort from the Napa Valley where so many wines are out of balance and over ripe.

Over extracted, over-the-hill, jam and hints of apple cider which is not a good sign...

This is my first Dalla Valle, even if it is Casa Dalla Valle. But, well worth the effort still. Pretty typical California Cabernet Sauvignon with big fruit, big tannins, long bold finish. Beyond that, there are some interesting notes on the nose - hot shower steam (like running the shower for an hour with the door closed and then taking a big breath in on opening the door), a slight touch of blood orange citrus and a piece of wet wood, freshly stripped of its bark. Odd combination, but still a very nice wine. Takes me back to my days in the Bay Area.

Big Red! (Sportsman's): Dark ruby color. Earthy black currant aromatics. Blackberry and cherry fruit. Good balance. Nice mid palate depth with a solid finish.

never heard of this wine, but i presume they would be trying anything to sell product after their precipitous fall post replanting. never been a fan of maya, but have enjoyed several of the napa cabs 94-99. this wine is a dud. just in this tasting alone against the grade cab...no mas.

Definitely classic Oakville Napa/cult cab. On a blind-blind tasting there would be no mistake on where this came from. Not my style because it is so one dimensional and the vanilla is a bit much for me. Nice for a glass but it is not very interesting wine and it just paled in comparison to the 75' Latour which preceded it. Soft, fleshy, heavily extracted, and polished with sweet tannins. If I had more I would wait and hope that it develops into something more complex but I would not be surprised if it didn't.

This second bottle was much better than the first - likely a combination of no bottle shock and some time to fill out. Big, with solid fruit and a lot of structure for a second wine. This wine is very good - with just a little missing from the mid-palate - but a lot of rich fruit to it and a strong, but ripe tannic finish. If it were half the price I would be loading up on it. Can go now but with the tannin I would give it a bit of time. B+/A-

Weak on the nose. Nice chocolate tones on the palate, but weak finish. A bit better on day 2 but still thin.

Floral on the nose. Blackberry deep and concentrated on the palatte. Still had tannin to shed but not overwhelming. Very nice wine although could use several more years.

Drinking fairly today with a bit of off-taste I couldn't quite identify. Otherwise has the makings of a very good wine.

No I am not over-rating this. It was fabulously lush, jammy, extracted. Still young anf tannic but a pleaseure fruit bomb.

continue to be amazed that this 'house' wine can be such a fruit bob, well balanced, with velvety tannins...

Thanksgiving day treat. Decanted two hours. Lots of blackberry, chocolate. Very round. Moderate oak and tannin. Medium-long finish (20 sec). Could use 2-3 years but drinking well, now. Pretty good for a third wine.
