Over ten years ago, owner/winemaker Delia Viader “dared” to produce her first varietal Cabernet Franc from the VIADER Estate to showcase her favorite variety as an equally thrilling, accessible, and balanced wine. Our DARE by Viader wines offer bright fruit and approachability from the first taste to the last drop.
Winemakers' Tasting Notes: Inviting floral notes of lavender, violet, and rose petals and vibrant aromatics of dark red fruits recalling pomegranate, cassis, and raspberry. A welcoming suppleness on the palate with more dark fruits, lush acidity, and firm ripe tannins – all in exceptional balance. The commanding finish lingers with notes of sweet oak, fresh red, blue and black fruits, and black tea.
Varietal Breakdown: 100% Cabernet Franc from the Viader Estate
Production: 650 cases
