The 2012 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon shows just how good this varietal can be when grown in our very unique terroir. Density and concentration are delivered along with subtlety and nuance, an unusual combination in Napa Valley. The power of the vintage shows through, with intense aromatic notes of
black fruits, cedar, and gravel, tightly knit with a strong tannic structure. However, with all that is packed into the wine, there are still many layers that emerge with time in the glass—the tannins show an increasing polish, and the perfume becomes even more effusive and complex—hints that this wine has a
long life ahead of it.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits rich blackcurrant, forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and hints of licorice and new barriques. Dominated by its fruit, this full-bodied, plush, opulent wine is a seamless, classic example of hillside Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It can be drunk early, but should age effortlessly for two decades or more.
