2012 Viader "Dare" Napa Valley Cabernet Franc

SKU #1351406 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A classic Cabernet Franc from Delia Viader, the 2012 Cabernet Franc Dare By Viader offers pretty notes of plums, licorice, blueberries and black raspberries. Medium-bodied and elegant with supple tannins, a luxurious mouthfeel, and a soft style, it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 7-8 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good dark red. Aromatic nose offers black cherry, spices and nutty oak, complicated by tobacco leaf and rose petal. Tactile and nicely concentrated, with a restrained sweetness and good density to the red berry, mocha and menthol flavors. Boasts good stuffing and breadth, then finishes a bit youthfully clenched, with a fine dusting of tannins and a faintly tart edge. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
