($40) Good full ruby-red. Aromas of bitter cherry, leather and band-aid. Sweeter and suppler than the 2005 cabernet franc release, with a distinctly plumper, softer middle palate. Finishes with dusty tannins and lingering sweet fruit.

Complex, tight and focused, displaying dried currant and spicy berry notes, with hints of nutmeg, sage and herbs. The long, focused, lingering, firmly tannic finish bodes well for short-term cellaring.

Inky in color. Slow legs. Lead pencil, Oak (little too much), Blueberry, Blackberry, Prune. Tasted again on 10/02/09, consistent notes with above, in addition, silky mouthfeel, oak was a little more in balance this time, earth/brown tobacco notes came through as well; drank with pork barbeque.

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.
