Dalla Valle Vineyards Maya 2000
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Dalla Valle Vineyards|
A dark, rich, enormously complex and concentrated wine, with plush black cherry and blackberry fruit that's beautifully balanced. Gains richness and surges on the finish, where the tannins coat the palate, picking up a trace of mocha. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2005 through 2014.
The 2000 Maya (a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc) is a medium-weight, elegant effort displaying spice box, incense, loamy soil, dried herb, creme de cassis, and smoky oak characteristics. Medium-bodied, lovely, and forward, it will drink well for 8-12 years.
