Galloni notes that this utterly lovely "second wine" from Dalla Valle "is rich, deeply spiced and super-expressive. A gorgeous, open-knit wine, the 2013 captures all the signatures of this great vineyard and estate. Aromatically pure and nuance, with generous, vivid red-fleshed fruit, the 2012 is absolutely gorgeous today. Quite frankly, the 2012 Collina could stand head to head with many of Napa's flagship bottlings. It is every bit that good."

Naoko Dalla Valle’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vines, astride terra rossa soils high above the Silverado Trail in Oakville, are the stuff of myth. With a tantalizingly small amount of wine made, nearly all of their production is sold direct to their mailing list. Thankfully Bounty Hunter has been on board from the beginning, and each year we obtain a small parcel to offer you, including the rare and occasionally “perfect” Maya.
