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.

(from purchased grapes): Aromas of redcurrant, flowers, coffee, menthol and rose petal. Fat and ripe; really plush for a wine from this producer. Pliant flavors of strawberry, raspberry, flowers and menthol convey a strong impression of sweetness. Here the wine's tannins are covered in fruit. The finish is lifted by notes of menthol and orange peel.
