Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, November 2021

98+ Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate needs a lot of swirling and coaxing to unlock notions of blackcurrant pastilles, warm black plums and mulberries, plus hints of black olives, tilled...

Including 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a hidden gem. While the Maya gets all the attention, the classic Cabernet Sauvignon from this team is insanely good, year-in, year-out. The 2019 sports a dense...

Jeb Dunnuck, from jebdunnuck.com, awarded this wine an impressive score of 97, describing it as a "hidden gem." He emphasized the wine's "dense purple color" and its "quintessential Cabernet notes of cassis, black raspberries, flowers, toasted spices, and tobacco leaf." Dunnuck praised the wine for its "incredible purity of fruit," "full-bodied" nature, "silky tannins," and "flawless balance," suggesting it has "30 years of prime drinking ahead of it."

Vinous also rated the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon with a score of 97, calling it "dazzling" and highlighting its "striking resonance" and "elegant, refined personality." The review notes the inclusion of a small portion of wine aged in amphora, adding to its "aromatic presence and vibrancy." The flavors mentioned include "dark red cherry, red plum, mocha, spice, and new leather," with a recommended drinking window from 2026 to 2044.

James Suckling, from jamessuckling.com, gave an even higher score of 98, commending its "gorgeous blackberry and currant aromas with hints of herbs." He noted its "full-bodied" character, "nicely framed tannins," and a "long, lightly chewy finish." Suckling suggested that while it is drinkable now, it would benefit from three to four years of cellaring.

Wine Spectator rated the wine 96, observing it as "very tightly packed" with notes of "cassis, bitter plum, and loganberry." The review highlighted its "youthfully backward persona" and recommended cellaring until at least 2024 for the best experience.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave the wine an exceptional score of 98+, indicating it as deeply garnet-purple in color and requiring "a lot of swirling and coaxing" to reveal its complex aromas. The flavors mentioned include "blackcurrant pastilles, warm black plums, and mulberries," with "baker's chocolate and star anise hints." The review praised its "rich, concentrated" body and "impeccable poise."

Decanter, also scoring the wine 98, described it as having a "deep, dark and alluring nose" with "black fruit, rich cedar, and cigar box." The review commended its "beautiful and balanced" structure, with flavors of "blackberry, cassis, and fleshy plum," and an "endless finish."

Overall, the 2019 Dalla Valle Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has garnered exceptional reviews, highlighting its complexity, balance, and aging potential. It is considered a remarkable wine with a promising future.
