Loaded with scents of blueberries black cherries and cassis underpinned by a framework of cedary oak DVO's 2020 Red Wine is a 300-case blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot aged 23 months in 60% new French oak. Full-bodied without being overly high octane it shows admirable suppleness and ripe tannins. A blend of fruit from Oakville and Coombsville it's almost creamy-rich in texture on the palate then lingers elegantly on the lengthy finish. Nicely done! A partnership between Dalla Valle and Ornellaia the 2020 is the third vintage to be produced. Published: Mar 31 2023

Jeb Dunnuck: 95 Points

Coming from a collaboration between the team at Dalla Valle and Ornellaia in Italy the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon yet includes 7% Merlot and this cuvée is sourced from throughout the valley. It's a brilliant 2020 that I'd be happy to drink. Cassis darker currants spicy wood and chocolate all define the aromatics and it has terrific purity and elegance. Full-bodied concentrated and textured it has some building tannins that warrant short-term cellaring but it should have two decades of longevity.
