2012 Viader Red Napa Valley
Explosive aromatics of ripe red fruits, cherry, raspberry, wild strawberry and rose petals with burnt caramel notes. The ripeness of fruit contributes to a superb mouthfeel that is bold and balanced with incredibly smooth supple tannins. Intense spices grace the finish. This vintage especially lives up to its popular nickname for the Viader blend, "Liquid Cashmere."
Robert Parker - "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. "
James Suckling - "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"
Antonio Galloni - "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. "
