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.

(56% cabernet sauvignon, 29% syrah, 12% cabernet franc and 3% malbec): Good bright red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of black cherry, flowers, spices and peppery herbs. Juicy, spicy and fine-grained, with lovely rose petal lift animating the mid-palate. Finishes firmly tannic, brisk and persistent. This was bottled in August of 2012.
