2011 Dalle Valle Collina Proprietary Red Blend Napa
Collina Dalle Valle
captures the extraordinary nature of our hillside estate, blending wine
produced mainly our younger vines, planted in the last ten years. The 2011
vintage highlights the strength of our terroir, which has a western exposure
and rocky, well-drained soils. The result of a long, cool growing season, and
relatively late harvest, the grape were bright with acidity and full of
aromatic components. The 2011 Collina Dalla Valle, a blend of 57% Cabernet
Sauvignon, 42% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, is crafted to be accessible
and showcases the intensity and complexity that defines the wines of Dalla
Valle Vineyards. Structured and dense, the wine is polished and fine-grained.
With notes of red raspberry, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and all spice, it
has a viscosity and length that is remarkable. This wine will provide enjoyment
immediately and will age for 15-20 years.
