About Viader Vineyards & Winery
Since she released her first vintage in 1989, Delia Viader's flagship Proprietary blend has been an elegant, juicy, harmonious midweight whose sizable Cabernet Franc component contributes blackberry and licorice elements and a pronounced violet character to the core of Cabernet Sauvignon. According to Viader, her success comes from the terroir—a sunny spot at the foot of Howell Mountain—but we know it helps to have a bright mind calling the shots too.

($65) Medium red-ruby. Plum , game and smoky oak on the nose. Sweet, supple and vinous, with red fruit and game flavors of moderate ripeness and depth. An edge of acidity gives shape to the wine, but I'd like to have seen more del ineation and varietal character.
