Dalla Valle Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1991
|Brand||Dalla Valle Vineyards|
Wine AdvocateThe 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon (88% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Merlot) is an opaque, deeply saturated, purple-colored wine with a super sweet, pure nose of black-cherries, cassis, minerals, and vanilla. The wine possesses exceptional richness, full body, ripe tannin, and a blockbuster finish. Approachable now, it promises to evolve for two decades.
Wine SpectatorRich, earthy, minty style, with a touch of leathery bitterness and tannins that grip and hang on tightly. Deeply colored and concentrated. A bold, assertive style that definitely needs time.--'81/'91 California Cabernet retrospective. Best from 2003 through 2012.
