2018 Dalla Valle Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
2018 Dalla Valle Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, which always includes a splash of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is incredible juice and a wine readers should seek out. Showing the quality and style of the vintage beautifully, it offers a captivating bouquet of crème de cassis, unsmoked tobacco, bouquet garni, and violets, with just a touch of foresty, earthy notes in the background. Aged 22 months in barrel (with a small amount in amphora), it’s full-bodied and perfectly balanced, with integrated acidity and a great finish. I love this wine. 97+pts Parkers WA
This throws a lot at you from the get-go, with sassafras, sweet bay leaf and red tea notes leading off, before the core of red and black currant paste and boysenberry reduction starts to assert itself. Licorice and fruitcake accents check in late, with all the other elements falling into line easily through the lengthy finish. Distinctive and gorgeous. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,000 cases made. 97pts Vinous
Cult Napa Cab Legend
I have a tiny amount of one America’s greatest wines that is only sold to top restaurants and the lucky few on the winery’s mailing lists. The 2018 Dalla Valle Cabernet is one of the true greats of Napa Cab, as good as it gets. Made by Napa winemaking legend Andy Erickson and internationally renowned consulting enologist Michel Rolland. Only 500 cases of the wine are made. Since its first vintage in 1986 the wine reached cult status. This is your chance to experience a true collector classic. 2018 is a buy vintage for such quality and we will try and satisfy all orders.
