2010 Dalla Valle - Cabernet Sauvignon "Maya" Napa Valley
"In my opinion, this is one of the most amazing Cab Francs coming out of the Napa Valley today. It is consistently well made, tastes great young, and, as I recently discovered after tasting a 1997, the wine also can easily stand ten or more years in the bottle. (In fact, I nearly had to wrestle Gary for the last pour from the bottle!) Let's just say it far exceeded our expectations. Winemaker Andy Erickson just released the 2010 and has crafted another gem. It may have received a score of 98 points, but in my house, it's always a 100-point wine!"--Julia Marcaletti, SFWTC
Wine Advocate: 98 Points
"The 2010 Maya is a less evolved, more backward, brooding wine with a dense opaque blue/purple color, explosive richness, and abundant notes of incense, camphor, charcoal, blackberries, blueberries and hints of violets and forest floor. Full-bodied, pure, deep, structured and powerful, this massive Maya comes across as even bigger and richer than the 2009. Forget it for 3-5 years and drink it over the following 30+ years." -Robert Parker
