Alluring and full of unmistakable pedigree, Dalla Valle Maya is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from the small and remarkable vineyard that bears its name. Each year less than 500 cases of this wine are produced. The grapes for Maya are aged in 70% to 80% new French oak, producing a graceful wine of refinement, rich elegance and outstanding aging potential.

Tight, firm and structured, with a rich, focused beam of blackberry, black cherry, currant, herb and anise. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, this unfolds slowly and enticingly to reveal extra dimensions of complexity and nuance, getting better with every sip. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2010 through 2017.

A blend of two-thirds Cabernet Franc and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 Maya reveals an exceptional bouquet of sweet blue and black fruits intermixed with notions of flowers, roasted herbs, and charcoal. Dense, full-bodied, and powerful, with superb richness, complexity, and potential, this is a super example of this Cabernet Franc-dominated wine. Surprisingly approachable now, it should evolve for 15-20+ years.
