($75; a blend of 61% cabernet sauvignon and 39% cabernet franc) Bright ruby. Vibrant, multifaceted nose combines black raspberry, plum, bitter chocolate, leather, tar and smoke, plus a floral nuance. Bright, focused and very intensely flavored, with lovely sweetness and noteworthy detail. Bitter chocolate and dark berry notes, with a sweet overlay of oak. A structured, delineated wine with compelling density and sappy verve. The very long finish features fine, complex tannins. A superb example that really captures the potential of this cool, European-styled vintage.

Very deep crimson right out to the rim. Sweet chocolate cherry notes on the nose overlays that stoniness in this case. A slightly singed quality. Lovely sweetness at first and then a very dry finish. Quite long. The most typically California wine of the lot. A hint of beef extract.

This blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Cabernet Franc reveals attractive cassis and blueberry notes, subtle oak, and spice. This wine is graceful, elegant, and medium-bodied, with sweet ripe tannin, and a moderate finish. It will drink well for 10-12 years.

Very rich and distinctive, with spicy currant, leather, tobacco, cedar and mocha aromas and complex, concentrated, earth, currant, spice and cedar flavors. Gains depth and nuance on the finish, where the flavors run deep and long. Tannins are firm and well-integrated. 3,500 cases made.

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.
