Viader Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Proprietary Red 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): (a 66/34 blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) Good full red-ruby. Currant and violet on the nose. Supple, sweet and nicely aromatic in the mouth... The violet note carries through to the back of this ripe and attractive wine, which finishes with firm, building tannins. (May/Jun 2009)

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

Underwhelming at $100 a bottle. While the finish is long and mouth puckering, I still cannot wrap my head around the price. I love the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

"The 2006 VIADER Proprietary Cabernet blend is inviting and delicate to the palate with deep purple color and rich bouquet of lavender
