Winemaker Notes

Viader produces less than 5,000 cases per year. The blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Cabernet Franc enhances the wine with great aromatics and bright cherry fruit. Viader prides itself in producing wines that are 100% organically grown, hand farmed with very low yields per acre.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Graceful and complex, with layers of spice, dried berry, mocha, roasted herb and tobacco, smooth on the finish, with ripe integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

Displaying loads of complexity, this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc has a nose of bay leaf, black currants, cedar in a very perfumed, medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant style. It is not a far-fetched comparison to call this Napa Valley Cheval Blanc, although that wine is a nearly equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon rather than Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Good ruby-red color. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, violet, tobacco, cedar and chocolatey oak. Sweet, supple and silky, with a burnished oak element and broad, fine tannins. Distinctly creamy in the middle, even on the soft side. Not quite as gripping as it appeared to be from barrel a year ago, but aromatic and suave. The cabernet franc was less potent in 2001 than in 2002, notes Viader, who told me that her wine is always under 14%.
