The 2006 DARE by Viader Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich aromas of blackberry, ripe blueberry and caramel, hints of earthy leather and sweet Indian spices. Very dark in color, on the palate it shows ripe currant, cherry and licorice flavors perfectly integrated with the sweet oak tannins. The intensity of ripe fruit, coupled with fine tannins guarantee early drinking pleasure. This wine will liven up a meal and impress the discerning collector.

Winemaker's Notes:

Alan Viader fermented the fruit for our DARE by Viader Cabernet Sauvignon in small batches of fewer than 6 tons each in stainless steel tanks with whole berries and long cold soaks, turning the volume of the tanks constantly. Fermentations were quick, at temperatures below 85-88°F to preserve the delicate aromas. The gentle extraction slowly building the middle structure of the wines. Extended maceration periods, more than double of previous vintages, was done to balance tannin structure with richer and denser fruit notes. Wines remained sur lees for a period of 4 months with batonage (stirring) every 2 weeks.
