Bottle report: Close to perfection, from owc.

Just 300 cases of Dalla Valle's Maya 2002 were produced - making it an extremely rare and wonderful 100-point Parker wine. It was purchased in its original wooden case and is in excellent condition. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime drinking experience.

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.

”…pure perfection. It boasts an inky purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of incense, black fruits, charcoal and forest floor. Full-bodied, with monumental intensity, a multidimensional texture/mouthfeel, and a stunning finish, this beauty reveals the brilliant quality of the Dalla Valle Cabernet Franc plantings meshed with their powerful Cabernet Sauvignon.” Robert Parker
