Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89-91

Good full medium red. Perfumed aromas of red raspberry, currant and rose petal. Juicy, pretty red fruit flavors offer lovely inner-mouth aromatics and varietal character, but this youthfully tight wine also has a serious tannic spine to support at least several years of bottle aging. The building tannins dust the teeth.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Franc


One of the five major blending grapes in Bordeaux, Cabernet Franc is also one of the genetic parents of Cabernet Sauvignon (along with Sauvignon Blanc). Lighter, fruitier, and more herbaceous than Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc grows abundantly in the Loire region of France and is commonly blended with weightier Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Franc are peppers, tobacco, and violets.
