Estate Limited Edition Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

Really nice blend. 48% cab sauv, 21% cab franc, 21% Syrah, 10% Malbec. Nose was blueberry, earth, pepper and a hint of vanilla. Smooth mid plate with a medium weight and good balance of fruit and acidity. Oak, blackberry and raspberry with pepper, spice and forest floor that lingered for a long time. Enjoyable. — 2 years ago

Mike R

77% CS and 28% CF - it was opened and. Should been decanted - it was tight but after it got in the glass it opened up nicely - this has 10-20 years left - inky and bold and full of deep rich black fruits — 4 years ago

Viader V Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc

2011 Vintage Smelling like roses. Tasting like dried plums on a summer day....but it’s winter. Getting a little smoke in there but then again it could be the fire I have going. Wish I had one more bottle... — 3 years ago

Dare Napa Valley 2016

This is a 2016 Viader Dare cabernet franc

1.5 hour decant (little cloudy sediment). A majestic dark garnet color. On the nose: subtle notes of raspberry, pepper, anise, chocolate, mint. Taste: 1st time trying...nice cab franc with smooth notes of plum, cedar, pencil lead, smokey dried herbs, and pepper raspberry finish. A nice start to the weekend!

Yum, but my picture/wine does not compare to your Atlas/pool wine from a day ago. Cheers!

@Tom Garland yea but this wine was probably better than the wine I had!

Hundred Acre Vineyard

Fortunate Son Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

06 Viader - unfortunately kicked 07 Nickel and Nickel State Ranch - flat. 08 Hundred Acre Fortunate Son - third time’s a charm. Inky dark purple in the glass. Fresh roses on the nose with a hint of cayenne. Definitely a fruit bomb but has tons of depth and character. — 3 years ago

Monte Rosso Vineyard Gnarly Vine Zinfandel 2014

Only black from edge to edge. Intense aromas of black fruit plum compote, black pepper and vanilla. The ripeness of the fruit brings natural acidy to the party of black and blue fruit. The finish hangs on for an eternity with dried herbs, dusty gravel and molasses. If Darth Viader drinks wine, this would be his favorite! — 5 years ago
