91 points "(includes 12% cabernet franc): Ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, licorice and minerals. Energetic but extremely bound-up, with vibrant, sexy red berry, spice and iron flavors framed by almost peppery acidity. Conveys a low-pH, rather low-alcohol impression for a Dalla Valle wine. 91-93 points"

94 points "This is a dark, sharply focused, richly flavored wine, brimming with pure cherry, currant, mineral, sage and spice. Has the tannic strength to age. Being mostly Cabernet, this contrasts nicely with Dalla Valle's Maya, a blend that's about 50 percent Franc. Best from 2001 through 2008. 2,200 cases made. (JL)" Best 2001-2008
