In 1989 Our first Viader® Proprietary blend was produced, capturing an ideal balance between two varietals. The Cabernet Franc contributes to the early approachability, elegant structure and violet-like aromatics while the Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and character adding backbone structure for long aging potential. This blend has been referred to as “Liquid Cashmere”.
“When you taste wine from a great vineyard, it has a distinct personality; a taste, a feel, a look; something that makes it different from any vineyard in the world. This distinct personality, however, is the sum of a variety of personalities within the vineyard itself. Understanding and interpreting those personalities is the greatest challenge in the evolution of a great vineyard and the wine produced from it.” –Delia Viader
