($65) Good bright ruby-red. Red fruit, mint, licorice and exotic spices on the nose, with a lightly stewy quality. Rather soft on the palate, with currant, tobacco and sweet oak flavors of moderate complexity. A bit lacking in oomph and clarity, and slightly edgy on the back end.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum On the decline, drink it if you got it! Distinctly blackcurrants in the nose, some meaty aromas too. Taught and sour red fruits give way to some pepper and meaty aromas and flavors. Acidity is intact but too much leaving it out of balance with the fruit.

A darkly colored smooth and plush wine. Aromas of sweet plum and wood with an overlay of slight stemmy-ness (reminds me of a detuned Australian shiraz). Texturally the wine is very wine. Unfortunately, flavors are shallow and rather hollow. Simply put, the wine lacks sufficient fruit concentration. Still, what fruit there is is delivered cradled in lush velvet.

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.
