Viader Vineyards Cabernet Sauvingon 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

An extremely rare large format bottle of one of Napa�s most heralded Cabernet blends. Viader is one of the Wine Spectator�s favorite wines, TWICE ranking in the Top 5 of their Top 100 Wines of the World awards.Wine Spectator Current Vintage Review: �Aromas of dill and cedar turn firm and austere on the palate, where they're joined by earthy currant, blackberry and mineral nuances. On the finish, it turns complex, with the flavors neatly folding together. Tannins are ripe and balanced. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2007 through 2012.� �James Laube

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
