Tasting Notes from the Wine Maker for the 2007 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon: The Cabernet Sauvignon offering is deep and concentrated, with intense fruit aromas that build with time in the glass. The wine shows pure varietal character, mixed with notes of mineral and spice. The texture is broad and mouth filling, with excellent structure, a silky quality, and impressive length. The wine is very compelling, and continues to open with time. This wine should continue to develop for ten or more years.
Tasting Notes from the Wine Maker for the 2007 Collina Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon: Collina Dalla Valle is grown on our estate's hillside vineyards. This offering from 2007 delivers a compelling example of what this hillside vineyard can produce. Blended primarily with wine from younger vines on the estate, these bold, fruit-forward components proudly showcase the pedigree of this vineyard. The 2007 shows notes of fresh cherry, plum and cinnamon stick in the nose. The tannins are soft, but the fruit intensity gives the wine significant length, and the bold fruit flavors are enhanced by notes of cardamom, citrus peel, and black tea. While it may continue to evolve for many years, the Collina Dalla Valle is intended for immediate enjoyment.
