Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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)

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)
From the winery: "Our DARE® by Viader® wines highlight our dedication to showcasing the very best characteristics from one location, with one varietal. In particular, DARE® by Viader® offered us the opportunity to bottle a single-varietal offering of Cabernet Franc from our unique mountain estate. Crafted from the estate grapes that go into our flagship Viader® Proprietary Blend, our single-vineyard Cabernet Franc offers yet another lens into the unique terroir and distinctive tastes capable at Viader® estate."
