Nov 3, 2005 -
Viader Estate Red 2000
Appellation: Nape Valley Howell Mountain
Varieties:  63% Cabernet Sauvignon 37% Cabernet Franc

RM Rating 91
Viader Estate Red 2002
Appellation: Nape Valley Howell Mountain
Varieties:  Cabernet Sauvignon 51%, Cabernet Franc 49%
Vineyards:
Notes: Scents and flavors of that classic Howell Mountain terrior sweet currant, black cherry, raspberry and hints of plum and  mocha with a long smooth polished finish. Delicious.
RM Rating 94
Viader Dare Cabernet Franc 2003
 
Soft black pepper, sweet currant, raspberry, a hint of plum and mocha with a long smooth moderate tannin finish. This is a remarkable Franc as that Howell Mountain terrior currant comes through to soften and polish what is normally a more spicy and slightly rough varietal.
RM rating 92
Viader Dare Tempranillo 2003
 
80% Tempranillo and 20% Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc
Medium bodied, aromas and tastes of licorice and black berry predominate with hints of white pepper and black cherry. RM rating 88.
Viader Syrah 2003
Notes - Moderate body, somewhat flat compared to the other fruit forward wines - hints of berry fruit with a muted finish. A bit flat and closed. RM rating 86.
