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.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2007

($100; a 60/40 blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) Good deep red-ruby. Blackberry, violet and licorice aromas, complicated by leather and graphite. Wonderfully sweet, silky and suave, with an inner-mouth aromatic quality rare for the year. This very well-balanced blend is juicy, even a bit youthfully tight, and finishes with impressive perfume. Has the mid-palate sweetness to balance its firm tannic spine and offers a lovely combination of density and elegance. In comparison to this vintage, the 2003 release is more of an "upfront" wine, notes Viader, who pointed out that her flagship wine's cabernet franc element is more important to its aging potential than the sauvignon.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
