Bright, medium ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, black cherry, minerals, smoke and licorice are lifted by a violet topnote. Densely packed, ripe and seamless, with lovely depth and complexity to its claret-like flavors of currant, minerals and tobacco leaf. Really spreads out to saturate the palate on the long back end, which features building tannins and persistent sweetness of fruit. This very harmonious wine promises to be fat and rich for Viader's flagship blend. (ST)
A juicy and rich wine with blueberry and spice character. Full and velvety plus lots of fruit and hints of rose petal. Very stylish and cool. Best wine in years from here.
The deep ruby/plum/purple-tinged 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Viader is composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Cabernet Franc. It exhibits lots of spice box, cedarwood, fruitcake, black currant, plum and Asian soy characteristics in its medium to full-bodied, supple textured, soft, round, seductive personality. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years. (RP)
Given its particular cepage, it is not at all surprising that this wine charts a path all of its own, and true to past Viader bottlings, its compact, slightly nascent, young dark berry fruit is overlain by a wide range of woodsy, tobacco leaf, dusty earth complexities with a faintly gamy note thrown in for good measure. It is solid and structured with grippy tannins to spare, and, if fascinating right now, it has a very long way to go before fully showing all that it has. *One Star*
