Winemaker Notes

The 1998 vintage of this wine was ranked #3 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2001

The VIADER blend captures an ideal balance between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc contributes to the early approachability, elegant structure and violet-like aromatics while the Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and character as well as providing the backbone structure for long aging potential. VIADER is made from the finest selection of our hillside estate on Howell Mountain.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
This lush wine epitomizes the modern Napa style of soft richness and extreme drinkability when young. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it's beautiful now for its blackberry, black currant, dark chocolate and cedar flavors. For all its approachability, it should age well for the next six to eight years.
CG 91
Connoisseurs' Guide
This complex and decidedly sophisticated effort comes without the slightest suggestion of swagger, and it is instead a compact and keenly balanced bottling that only gradually gives up its gifts. It smacks of cherries, ripe raspberries and currants with glimmers of sweet cream and cola showing up here and there, and, if overtaken by eleventh-hour astringency just now, its ample fruit exhibits fine staying power and is a guarantor of a decade or more of certain improvement.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007, a similar blend, is made in the same mold, with striking elegance, slightly sweeter fruit, and more aromatic ripeness and projection, thanks to better vintage material. This is a well-balanced, understated, gracious wine to drink now and over the next 15 years.

Viader Vineyards Winery Image
Delia Viader is one of the true, visionary pioneers of the Napa Valley with consistently high-standards that she has passed onto the second generation of her family now fully involved in the Viader winery. As a woman winemaker and an early believer in the superior quality of mountain fruit, she has followed her own vision for how to create top-notch Napa wines.

Born in Argentina, Delia Viader came to the United States after spending many years in Europe. In 1986 the love of wine Delia acquired during her time in Europe lead her to purchase a 25 acre property 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor northeast of St. Helena on the steep, rocky slopes of Howell Mountain. During this time when 99% of Napa’s vineyards were planted on the valley floor, Delia was considered a bit crazy-headed to plant vineyards in such foreboding terroir. But it was exactly terroir that she was after.

Delia’s first release was a proprietary red blend from the 1989 vintage called simply Viader with a blend of almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine quickly gained an international reputation as one of the iconic wines of the Napa Valley and has become the signature wine for the winery.

With the release of the 2003 vintage the winery introduced the Dare label; a group of varietally labeled wines which are produced from a selection of estate fruit along with fruit sourced from their neighbors and friends. Current releases include a Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and a Tempranillo.

While raising four children on her own, Delia forged the vision and design for this unique estate vineyard property, wine blend and brand. In the last few years, Delia’s children have come back to help manage and operate the business making this a true family concern. Alan Viader is Director of Operations and Winemaking, Janet Viader is Director of Marketing and Sales. Mariela Viader (married to Alan) is in charge of the Culinary Program.
