Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2002,  (WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon Estate

Vintage: 2002
Region: US
Appellation: Oakville, Napa

WA97
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The sensational 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from the red soils of their vineyards planted in the Oakville Corridor on the eastern hillsides overlooking the valley floor vineyards of Screaming Eagle and Rudd Estate. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors reminiscent of a 4-to-5 year-old wine rather than one that has already hit a decade of age. In fact, it probably needs another 5-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 20-25 more years. It is another example of what will one day be regarded as the `golden age` of Napa Valley for the progress in quality and the world class wines that were produced. A wine of great stature and majesty, the youthful 2002 exhibits sweet licorice, creme de cassis, incense and graphite aromas, and is bursting with potential.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Despite the fact that I have given Dalla Valle`s wines fabulous reviews over the last 20 years, looking back, I seriously underrated the 2002s seven years ago. Both of these cuvees are among the superstars of this tasting. Their youthfulness, combined with their undeniable complexity and richness, is provocative.`
