VIADER Proprietary Red Blend shows the typicity and consistency of the VIADER estate, with its firm structure influenced by the steep and very rocky volcanic red soils of the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain, and the familiar elegance and harmony created through the combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Wine EnthusiastShows the luscious fruit and softness of previous vintages, with rich, layered raspberry, cherry, cassis, vanilla, caramelized oak and spice flavors that go on and on into a long finish. The tannins are sturdy from this blend of the two Cabernets, Sauvignon and Franc, which was grown on the lower slopes of Howell Mountain. Yet it's so sweet and fruity, you can drink it now. Misses some of the complexity of the 2007 vintage, but still very fine and polished.
