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.

(69% cabernet sauvignon and 31% cabernet franc):  Good full red.  Enticing, complex nose combines aromas of cherry, raspberry, violet, minerals, coffee and spices.  Broad, lush and smooth, with pretty floral lift to the red fruit and spice flavors.  Nicely delineated in the middle palate and long on the back end, where the ripe tannins coat the teeth.  The crop level here was reduced by a bad flowering, said Alan Viader, but the loose clusters were an advantage later in the season.  The harvest was ultimately very early.
