Tasting Notes:
rated: May 5, 2014 , Stephen Tanzer
93 points "Bright red-ruby. Reticent but complex cabernet aromas of dark berries and minerals. Sweet, dense and sappy; not particularly showy today but boasts outstanding energy to its currant and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the superb resounding finish, which features substantial smooth tannins and outstanding lift. (93-95)."

94 points "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." Best -2034

98 points "A deep, layered wine, Dalla Valle's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses fabulous richness and texture to match its rich contours. Silky tannins shape the succulent finish in a Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the very best of the vintage. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice, new leather and mocha are laced into the exotic, voluptuous finish. Today, the 2012 speaks to polish above all else. This is a stunning 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon." Best 2018-2037

91 points "Centered on pure, firm, dense blackberry and wild berry flavors, shaded by spicy, cedary oak. Ample underlying tannins give this a drying sensation. Drink now through 2027. 1,000 cases made." Best -2027
