Viader Cabernet Franc Napa Valley Dare 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red. Spicy aromas of bitter cherry, flowers, licorice and menthol. Juicy and intense, with a creamy quality and lovely aromatic lift to its flavors of bitter cherry and flowers. Finishes perfumed and persistent, with rather suave tannins. A lovely cabernet franc bottling.

VIADER's vineyards and winery are located on the steep rocky slopes of Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley. While raising four children on her own, Argentine-born Delia Viader forged the vision and design for her unique estate vineyard property, wine blend and brand. Because of her dedication, persistence and insight, VIADER was recognized early on as a first growth property and the wines have been highly coveted since inception. She has earned the reputation as a pioneer for planting the vines running directly down the mountain, in a style normally found in Europe. After some initial criticism, the planting technique with its vertical trellises is now regarded as an ideal model for growing super-premium quality grapes. The original focus on Cabernet Franc as the main blending component was a natural homage to Delia's European roots and her love of Cheval Blanc. In the last few years, Delia's children have joined the business, making this a true family operation. Read less
