2018 NAPA VALLEY RED

The 2018 DVO is a true reflection of the collaborative spirit of Dalla Valle and Ornellaia. Both nose and palate unravel in complex layers of ripe black plums and fresh black cherry and finishes with high toned red fruits, graphite, leather, cured meat and violets.  Further notes of black olive, Bay Leaf and Pine needle character adds to the immense complexity on the palate. The 2018 vintage contains a  brilliant balance between density and concentration while still preserving the freshness and structure necessary to mature for many decades.
