About This Item

VIADER shows the typicity and consistency of the VIADER estate with its firm structure influenced by the steep and very rocky volcanic red soils of the eastern slopes of Howell Mountain, and the familiar elegance and harmony created through the combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 

94 points from Wine Enthusiast!

The producer packs a powerful punch into this blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc, aged two years in 70% new French oak. Big, hearty tannins wrap around curls of smoked meat, clove, sage and black pepper, finding common purpose in layered complexity. It should be best between 2022 and 2026. Cellar Selection. —V.B. (Feb 2017)

Winemakers Notes: Deep ruby red color with generous aromatics and a great balance of sweet fleshy red and blue fruits, with hints of graphite and delicate floral notes. An attractively smooth and seamless mouthfeel. Extensively long layered finish of baking spices, cloves and star anise. Gorgeous to enjoy today; it should evolve into legendary territory in 10 years’ time with more cellaring in the bottle. Drink Now – 20 years
