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.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
Good dark red. Aromatic nose offers black cherry, spices and nutty oak, complicated by tobacco leaf and rose petal. Tactile and nicely concentrated, with a restrained sweetness and good density to the red berry, mocha and menthol flavors. Boasts good stuffing and breadth, then finishes a bit youthfully clenched, with a fine dusting of tannins and a faintly tart edge.
