2005 Dalla Valle Maya Proprietary Red - 95 Pts!

The estate wines produced by Dalla Valle Vineyards originates 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 our best selected blocks of Cabernet Franc.

MDV is a mailing list only wine that is produced only in exceptional years. It is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Maya’s Vineyard, the base of Maya.

Rating 95 RP - The 2005 Maya Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Cabernet Franc. Many experienced observers believe that the Cabernet Franc grown in the red soils of Dalla Valle's vineyards is the finest in California and this cuvee has always reflected that. The dense ruby/purple-hued 2005 reveals a lovely sweet perfume of scorched earth black and red fruits truffles and a whiff of pain grille. The flavor profile possesses notions of chocolate and smoky oak along with rich layered fruit an enticing texture and a long finish. This outstanding red wine will age well for 20-25 years. It is one of the most graceful approachable Mayas made recently. RP
