Dalla Valle Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Dalla Valle Vineyards|
Thanks to the perfect amount of lingering sunlight, cool marine breezes, and red volcanic soil, the 2016 vintage is a standout for Dalla Valle. Enticing aromatics of cinnamon, fruit and floral aromas are followed by red cherry, plum, tobacco and a touch of spice. A seductively approachable Cab… grab your allocation and impress your friends.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate saunters out of the glass with a seriously sexy nose of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries, kirsch and black cherries with touches of fragrant soil, cassis, tobacco leaf, candied violets and espresso. Medium to full-bodied, the palate positively quivers with an electric intensity of tightly wound black and red berry layers, framed by very firm, fine-grained tannins and delivering bags of freshness and perfume on the very long finish.
The two 2016 releases from Dalla Valle start with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, a sensational wine that easily stands next to the smaller production Maya cuvée. This rocking base level Cabernet has awesome notes of blackcurrants, graphite, crushed rocks, chocolate, and damp earth/forest floor aromas and flavors. It's rich, powerful and concentrated, yet also elegant, with silky tannins and a finish where its class shows clearly. It's a beautiful bottle of wine that will have two decades or more of longevity.
