Viader Vineyards Napa Valley Red Wine 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 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.
Wine SpectatorDense and chewy, with extracted, grainy tannins and roasted coffee, dried herb and chicory flavors that hold the upper hand over dried dark berry notes. Slowly unravels on the finish. Needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2027.
