2011 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon Dalla Valle

Average critic rating : 88.0 points



The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is the most drinkable and precocious of this trio. It offers hints of baking spices, bouquet garni, red and black currants and loamy soil. An endearing, charming, round, savory effort, this lovely 2011 is slightly more herbaceous than its siblings, nor does it possesses the size and substance of either the 2009 or 2010. Drink it during its first decade of life. ||Following a significant replanting, Dalle Valle appears to have come back with an impressive group of wines. The proprietary red wine named after proprietress Naoko Dalla Valle’s daughter, Maya, used to be blended with 50-55% Cabernet Franc, but it is only about one-third of the blend over recent vintages.. One of the original cult wines of California, this brilliant wine has had enormous success since the mid- and late 1980s. The 2012s are typical for the vintage with lots of fruit, body and precocious, seductive personalities.||Tel. (707) 944-2676 Wine Advocate.October, 2013
