Viader Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Proprietary Red 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

The VIADER blend captures an ideal balance between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc contributes to the early approachability, elegant structure and violet-like aromatics while the Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and character as well as providing the backbone structure for long aging potential. VIADER is made from the finest selection of our hillside estate on Howell Mountain.

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

Great cab blend with lots of smoke, cedar and spice in the nose. Ripe cherry flavors with spice. Nice tannins and long finish.

Floral grapey aromas fold in with new leather and currant flavors in a sleek, rich, concentrated style that's very Bordeaux-like in its balance and restraint, showing black cherry, herb and tar notes on a long, persistent finish... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2002 Viader Vineyards Proprietary Red Wine 750ml
