2016 VIADER Proprietary Red Wine Howell Mountain ($195): A proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc sourced from Viader estate vineyards on the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain. This blend put Delia Viader on the map as a Napa pioneer for showcasing Cab Franc alongside Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of dark and red fruit and berries, cassis, warm baking spice, fresh herbs, dusty earth, tobacco, and black pepper arouse the senses. Its silky texture is accentuated by smooth tannins, high acidity, and a bold structure. A wine to enjoy now with a long decant, or age for more concentration. Purchase direct from Viader.
