Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled, the 2015 Viader Proprietary Red Blend is the same blend as the 2014 and is aging in 75% new French oak. It has slightly more density and plushness compared to the 2014, with more blue fruits, scorched earth, and graphite all showing. It’s a big, rich, yet elegant 2015 that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and have 2+ decades of overall longevity." Dec 2017

Winery: "Our distinctive Viader® Proprietary Blend shows the typicity and consistency of the Viader® estate, with its firm structure influenced by the rocky volcanic soils of the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain, and its elegant, yet intensely rich profile achieved through our signature combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Pioneered by Delia Viader, one of the first female winemakers in the Napa Valley, our Viader® blend put Delia on the map as one of the first in Napa to tackle and successfully showcase Cabernet Franc as a deserving blending companion with Napa’s King, Cabernet Sauvignon.

In our iconic blend, Cabernet Sauvignon provides the backbone, structure, character and aging potential with succulent fruit and rich tannins, while Cabernet Franc instills a mellowed complementary balance and early approachability to the wine with beautiful aromatics, silky texture and an elegant finesse. Today, our Viader® blend continues our family winemaking legacy in Napa Valley, handcrafted by the mother and son winemaking team of Delia and Alan Viader."
