Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94+ points

Two terrific wines from Dalla Valle, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc) from their hillside vineyards in Oakville, exhibits a dense purple color along with a beautifully sweet perfume of cedarwood, creme de cassis, incense and spice box. Full-bodied and rich with gorgeous purity and texture as well as a multidimensional mouthfeel, it still has some tannins to shed and tastes like it is only 4-5 years old. It has at least two decades of life ahead of it.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 91 points

Bright, full ruby. Aromas of blackcurrant, minerals and shoe polish. Sweet, juicy and dense, with enticing black fruit flavors and lovely inner-mouth energy. Like the Maya, this really expands to fill the mouth. A large-scaled, sexy wine with lovely clarity and class. The building tannins dust the teeth and tongue.

Wine Spectator: 91 points

Impressive for its core of rich, chewy currant, blackberry, wild berry and cedary oak flavors. It packs a wallop, too, with its dense, chewy tannins, but on the finish the fruit pours through to reveal lots of depth and complexity. Best from 2006 through 2013. 2,000 cases made.
