The estate wines produced by Dalla Valle Vineyards originate in specific vineyard blocks, imbuing each with a unique sense of place. There are three wines produced each year from the estate.
Collina Dalla Valle, translating from Italian to “Hill of the valley”, is the introductory wine into the brand. This red blend is created from the younger vines on the property and offers a more approachable profile in its youth.
Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon was the first wine created from the estate in 1986. Always blended with a small fraction of Cabernet Franc, the Cabernet expresses the beauty of Dalla Valle Vineyards terroir.
Maya, named after founders Naoko and Gustav’s daughter, is a special blend of Maya’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and the best-selected blocks of Cabernet Franc.
Blend: 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Cabernet Franc
The 2016 Maya, It starts by pulling you in close, to appreciate the delicate and precise details of the wine, with all the exotic aromas of a Moroccan market coming from the Cabernet Franc, and the dark black fruit tones and crushed rock minerality that defines this part of Oakville.
The sensation then expands, like the slow crescendo of a Beethoven symphony, revealing deeper and yet more nuanced layers of complexity. Currant, huckleberry, cocoa, cinnamon, red leaf tobacco and flint are only a few of the notes offered up as the wine is tasted, delivered on a bed of silky, polished tannins.
Even as the finish builds to an impressive level of intensity and length, all of the subtleties and intricacies are there to enjoy. Indeed, the strength of this vintage will continue to reveal itself over the course of many years.
