The 2006 DARE by Viader Cabernet Franc expresses the unique qualities of the 2006 vintage, which was slighter cooler than 2005 during the first half of the year, thus delaying budbreak and bloom. The long warm summer allowed the fruit to catch up and reach optimal maturity. Showing structure yet elegance, this wine shows aromas of graphite, cherry and chocolate. It coats the palate with flavors of dark fruits, and medium tannins giving way to a long finish which will allow one to experience the 2006 vintage for many years to come.
