Dalla Valle, Maya 1994 was purchased in its original wooden case.

Dalla Valle Vineyards was established high above the Silverado Trail in Oakville by Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle in 1982, who were drawn to the ideal conditions for vine growing: long sunlight hours, a cooling marine influence and fertile volcanic soil. Michel Rolland is a consultant winemaker for the estate, whose wines, needless to say are on a waiting list.

“I don't think I need to reinforce the fact that these offerings are extremely difficult to find, but isn't that the way it always is with such extraordinary wines?

“…the stuff of legends. Life is too short not to drink a few bottles of Dalla Valle.

“The 1994 Maya is prodigious. The color is saturated opaque purple. The wine offers up restrained but gorgeously sweet earth, oak, mineral, and black fruit aromas. Full-bodied, with substantial quantities of glycerin and extract, this wine's large-scaled tannin seems to be well-submerged beneath the wine's fabulous layers of fruit.” Robert Parker
