Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cab opens with a mild blackberry and blueberry bouquet with hints of menthol and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a juicy boysenberry with notes of mild black currant and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its noticeable dusty tannins are very lengthy. This wine would pair well with prime rib or beef stew. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2006 DARE by Viader Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich aromas of blackberry, ripe blueberry and caramel, hints of earthy leather and sweet Indian spices. Very dark in color, on the palate it shows ripe currant, cherry and licorice flavors perfectly integrated with the sweet oak tannins. The intensity of ripe fruit, coupled with fine tannins guarantee early drinking pleasure. This wine will liven up a meal and impress the discerning collector.
