Viader Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Proprietary Red 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Upon opening, the aromatics bring forth delicate white floral notes, with bright red and blue fruits, and subtle hints of lightly scorched wood. Lively acidity supports a very broad flavor profile with a touch of brown sugar, milk chocolate, and vanilla bean tones which complement the smooth and silky texture. Sweet ripe tannins create a full-bodied and balanced mouthfeel. Within two hours, the wine shows more dark red fruits, with a touch of spice and licorice. Always best to decant when enjoyed young.

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

Beautiful, smooth feel in the mouth. Classic Napa Cab mellowed a bit with the high Cab Franc content. Elegant, long finish.
