 1996 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon
€180.00 per bottle (€180.00 per 0.75 litres)
€2,052.01 per case of 12 bottles (€171.00 per 0.75 litres)

Tasting Note:

"The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a fabulously sweet nose of cassis, smoke, herbs, truffles, and toasty wood, and rich, full-bodied flavors with stunning purity, ripeness, and extract. There is plenty of tannin, but it is beautifully integrated with the wine's body. This extraordinary cuvee, which sees only 30%-40% new oak casks, looks to be the finest Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon to date. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. As extraordinary as the wines from Dalla Valle have been, I think readers are in for two fabulous wines from the 1996 vintage. While I cannot think of any reason to criticize previous efforts, there is no question that the wines had formidable levels of tannin. Although the 1996s continue to offer plenty of tannin, the wines are sweeter than in the past. Both 1996s are seamless giants that are destined to become legends."
