Dalla Valle is known as the last original Cult Cabernet from Napa still available at reasonable prices. The “Maya” is considered one of the five rarest wines in California and a stupendous thrill ride to experience most vintages. This new 2013 release is a spectacular juxtaposition of all the bold and elegant dynamics that have made Maya a classic example of Napa’s prized Oakville appelation at its finest. Bursting forth with a complex nose of blueberry, charcoal, cassis and floral notes are followed by a full-bodied, seamless mouthfeel that evolves gracefully. The majestic finish offers a freshness of dark fruit flavors that linger for a full minute and portend additional layers that leave you anticipating your next sip. The aging potential is extensive as the wine should continue to refine over the next 25-50 years.
