TN: 2005 Viader Cabernet Franc Dare (USA, California, Napa Valley)

Yes…I will be going back to wipe out these at $23!

  • 2005 Viader Cabernet Franc Dare - USA, California, Napa Valley (11/29/2009)
    This is all about plush and rich darkberry fruit, complexed with mocha powder, vanilla oak barrel spice, smoked cherries still on branches, white pepper, menthol, kirsch liqueur. After having a bottle of 2002 Pride Mtn Res. Cab last night…this wine is VERY similar in taste…but with less tannic grip, and a lot more plush. The finish isn’t as powerful as the Pride…it kind of falls off a bit. But the nose, the entry, the mid…is a dead ringer…this is tasty stuff!!! And the “feel” of this wine is a bonus. (93 pts.)

Oooh, I think there’s been smoking going on, but it has nothing to do with the cherries…

And this wine is JUST LIKE the Pride Reserve Cabernet, but different…


Yeah, and when did Coelho hack into Buzz’s account?
