Not yet bottled, the 2015 Viader Proprietary Red Blend is the same blend as the 2014 and is aging in 75% new French oak. It has slightly more density and plushness compared to the 2014, with more blue fruits, scorched earth, and graphite all showing. It’s a big, rich, yet elegant 2015 that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and have 2+ decades of overall longevity.
A barrel sample composed of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Proprietary Red Blend Viader sports a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crème de cassis, baked blackberries and kirsch plus hints of dried fruitcake, Chinese five spice, menthol and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, taut and seriously spicy in the mouth, it has an impressive array of earth and fruit layers supported by grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, with lingering aniseed notes on the finish.

Thick and broad-shouldered in ripeness, this hearty blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Cabernet Franc is accented by blackberry, tar, leather and coffee. The tannins are robust and youthful. (VB)
