(a blend of 55% petit verdot, 35% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc; Delia Viader says it's the cabernet franc, not the estate's rather serious merlot, that brings a softness to this wine) Medium ruby. Cool aromas of bitter cherry, dark chocolate, fresh herbs and spices. Juicy and penetrating, with firm acidity and chewy, mouthcoating tannins. I find that the cabernet franc sweetens and lengthens the wine's finish.

About This Producer


VIADER is a leading Napa Valley winery estate established in 1986 by Delia Viader, and recognized for consistently producing high quality red wines. The estate is located 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor just north-east of St. Helena on the steep, rocky slopes of Howell Mountain.

Since its inaugural vintage in 1989, the VIADER Proprietary blend has featured Cabernet Sauvignon with a significant component of Cabernet Franc. The second lable "V" is exclusively Petit Verdot. The estate VIADER Syrah is a blend of Barossa and Hermitage clones. DARE by Viader focuses on single varieties from select vineyards in the Napa Valley blended with their estate fruit. DARE Cabernet Sauvignon features fruit sourced from Lewelling Vineyards in St. Helena. DARE Cabernet Franc uses fruit from Stagecoach Vineyards in Oakville. DARE Tempranillo is made from a Ribera del Duero clonal selection sourced from the northeast side of the Napa Valley. VIADER also produces a very limited amount of Cabernet-based dry DARE Rose.
