This single vineyard Cabernet and Cabernet Franc blend is from a small 2 acre lot on the eastern Oakville Hillside. It received a double 100 point score for good reason, it is hands-down one of the best wines made in 2016.

“Medium to full-bodied and with fabulous elegance and poise in the mouth, the palate delivers layer upon layer of perfumed black and red fruits with a very firm, finely grained texture and an epically long, mineral-laced finish.” 100WA, LPV

Dalla Valle is recognized as one of Napa Valley’s preeminent family-run wineries. What started as a small project in 1986 has transformed into one of the world’s most celebrated wine estates. The winemaking team consists of 100 point super-winemakers, Andy Erickson and Michel Rolland.

This 2016 is a blend of two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Cabernet Franc from the Oakville Hillside Estate. This DOUBLE-100 pointer was noted by Wine Advocate for its “achingly beautiful wafts of cigar box, pencil lead, camphor, cinnamon stick, and forest floor. Medium-to-full-bodied and with fabulous elegance and poise in the mouth, the palate delivers layer upon layer of perfumed black and red fruits with a very firm, finely grained texture and an epically long, mineral-laced finish.” It is one of the favorites in our Merchant tasting room.
