1999 Viader Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (torn label)

SKU #1537133 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Vibrant, multifaceted nose combines black raspberry, plum, bitter chocolate, leather, tar and smoke, plus a floral nuance. Bright, focused and very intensely flavored, with lovely sweetness and noteworthy detail. Bitter chocolate and dark berry notes, with a sweet overlay of oak. A structured, delineated wine with compelling density and sappy verve. The very long finish features fine, complex tannins. A superb example that really captures the potential of this cool, European-styled vintage. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2001)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows fresh, subtle aromas of cedar, cigar box, ripe plum and black cherry, with touches of mint and herb. Elegant, supple, full-bodied, complex and stylish, ending with a detailed finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. (JL, Web-2009) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very deep crimson right out to the rim. Sweet chocolate cherry notes on the nose overlays that stoniness in this case. A slightly singed quality. Lovely sweetness at first and then a very dry finish. Quite long. The most typically California wine of the lot. A hint of beef extract. (JR) 18/20 Inner quote mark (11/2004)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Cabernet Franc reveals attractive cassis and blueberry notes, subtle oak, and spice. This wine is graceful, elegant, and medium-bodied, with sweet ripe tannin, and a moderate finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2002)
