($85; a 51/49 blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) Good bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, currant and dark chocolate aromas lifted by a floral topnote. Fat and full but quite dry, with currant and blueberry flavors. Finishes with firm, dusty, palate-coating tannins. This is a bit youthfully muscular today; in comparison, the unfinished 2003 is more elegant.

This wine has the highest proportion of Cabernet Franc ever for a Viader, 50 per cent. Very deep blackish purple. Extremely aromatic ? almost Bordelais. Thick and sweet and very Cabernet Franc with its pronounced, refreshing aroma. Lovely. Ethereal. Arguably the most Bordelais of the lot. Sumptuous. This may well deserve a higher mark.

Floral grapey aromas fold in with new leather and currant flavors in a sleek, rich, concentrated style that's very Bordeaux-like in its balance and restraint, showing black cherry, herb and tar notes on a long, persistent finish. Tannins are firm and integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 4,500 cases made.

Decanted 2+ hours still could use lots more air time. Fat, fruity, hell of a palate liner.

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.
