Winemaker's Notes:

The DARE Cabernet Sauvignon emits concentrated aromas of ripe black cherry, dark currant, cassis, tobacco and cedar notes with faint hints of caramel. On the midpalate, the vibrant tannins and well-integrated oak flavors give the impression that the wine is lightly dancing over one's taste buds. Firm tannins grace the finish. This wine is to be enjoyed young or cellared for 3 to 5 years time from vintage.

About Viader Vineyards:

The Viader Estate has 30 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Founded in 1987, Viader is located northeast of St. Helena, at 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor, on Howell Mountain. Their organically farmed vineyards, established by Delia Viader on land acquired by her father in the early 1980s, produce limited quantities of Bordeaux-style red wines and Syrah.
