You are bidding on 1 bottle of Dalla Valle Maya, an extremely rare wine by Dalla Valle. Only 500 cases were produced and it is estimated that only about 600 of these bottle remain in existence, the remaining being consumed. This wine was obtained upon release and has been in my luxury home built in wine cellar at 58 degrees since purchase. It is a WONDERFUL special occasion wine or for those lucky few a truly amazing drinking wine.

The 1998 Maya (500 cases from a blend of 45% Cabernet Franc and 55% Cabernet Sauvignon) is an amazing effort, possessing multiple layers of fruit, sweet tannin, and no herbaceousness, astringency, or thinness. This is an amazing tour de force in winemaking for the vintage. It is loaded, with impeccable balance. Anticipated maturity: now-2020. As I indicated in my December, 2000 report, Dalla Valle's 1998s are candidates for wines of the vintage
