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.

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.

Very good wine. Interesting blend with so much Petite Verdot. Lots of spice and ceder box aroma. Chocolate and plum in the taste. I would love to taste a vertical of this.

The nose is not over powering. Picked up hints of blackberry. On the palate a very different story. Loaded with dark ripe plums and some other fruits in the background. hints of vanilla, some tartness and really nice tannins. Nice structure and full body. The best part is the super finish that goes on and on and picking up hints of dark chocolate.

A cool start, moving into eucalyptus with a beautiful finish. Tasted at the New York Wine Experience

...Licorice, smoky oak and a hint of surmaturite on the nose. Round, sweet and approachable, with plum and licorice flavors. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and good freshness and grip... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2001 Viader Vineyards Proprietary Red Wine 375ml

From the steep, rocky slopes of Howell Mountain, comes this well-rounded St. milion-like blend of 55% Cab Sauvignon and 45% Cab Franc. Highly aromatic with lots of cherry/currant fruit on the nose and palate. An elegant and complex wine.
