2013 Viader Napa Valley Proprietary Red (Previously $150)

SKU #1341603 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A red that shows lots of black currant and fresh floral aromas. Full body, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Yet reserved and very pretty. Refined at the finish. About half cabernet sauvignon and half cabernet franc. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (1/2016)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A slight majority of Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 47% Cabernet Franc to offer an explosion of chocolate, blackberry jam and bitter black tea against more classical undertones of brushy sage and cedar. A powerhouse of a wine, it finishes in grippy tannin and oak. (VB) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Viader's 2013 Red Wine is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Cabernet Franc from the lower slopes of Howell Mountain. A rush of dark red stone fruit, mocha, espresso, dried flowers and cedar races across the palate. Fleshy and pliant, but also backed by considerable structure, the 2013 is going to need time to fully come together. Expressive aromatic top notes from the Franc reappear on the finish. This is a typical 2013 built on power, intensity and substance. The new oak needs time to fully integrate, so readers will have to be patient. Drink 2020 - 2033. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Viader Vineyards 2013 Proprietary Red Blend is their main cuvée of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Cabernet Franc, of which 1,350 cases were produced. This is the star of the trio, with a dense ruby/purple color, nice notes of graphite, damp earth, forest floor, blue and black fruits and some vanilla. There is plenty of tannin in the wine, the style clearly meant to be a more austere and angular. This wine was aged 22 months in French oak and needs a good 4-5 years of cellaring. It should last for at least 20 or more years. 90+ (RP) Inner quote mark (1/2015)
