Winemaker's Notes

2005 Viader Dare Cab Franc The DARE Cabernet Franc comes from their hillside estate vineyards blended with fruit sourced from Jan Krupps Stagecoach Vineyards in Oakville As they intend this wine to drink earlier than the VIADER, the wine is aged on primary lees for 6 months before being racked and blended to impart mid-palate weight and texture. The lifted aromatics exhibit red plums, raspberry and bing cherry supported by secondary notes of east Indian spice and cardamom.The wine shows a plush entry that leads to a well-defined mid-palate and a long, silky finish. This is a California Wine
