2019 Dalla Valle Vineyards Collina Red Blend, Napa Valley, USA (750ml)
Dalla Valle's Collina bottling captures the extraordinary nature of their hillside estate, blending wine prouduced from mainly their younger vines planted in the last 10-20 years; something considered "mature" by others' standards. The 2019 vintage highlights the strength of Dalla Valle's terroir, which has a western exposure and rocky, well-drained soils. The result of a long, cool growing season, the grapes were bright with acidity and full of aromatic components. This year the Collina bottling is comprised of 50% Cabernet Franc, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot.
The base 2019 Collina was originally made from the younger vines of the estate, yet those vines aren’t so young anymore, and this easily stands alone as a brilliant Bordeaux blend. Black cherries, currants, leafy herbs, and subtle floral notes all define the bouquet, and it’s darker, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced on the palate. It’s undeniably delicious and perfect for drinking over the coming 10-15 years
