1994 Viader Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #300210 90-93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Smoky, sweet, black and red currant aromas jump from the glass of this intriguing, saturated purple-colored wine. Some new oak is noticeable in the background. The wine's attack exhibits terrific purity of fruit, more acidity than many 1994s, and sweet, ripe tannin, all packed into a tightly wound, medium to full-bodied wine that only hints at its ultimate potential. This is not a large-scaled 1994, but it is a beautifully etched wine with considerable personality. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/1996)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Aromas of bitter cherry, mint, flowers, licorice, tobacco and iron; very Cabernet Franc! Juicy and light on its feet, conveying good intensity to its spicy flavors of redcurrant and tobacco. On the lean side--more Médoc than Napa in texture--but minerally and firm. Finishes elegant and fresh, with earth and herb nuances and slightly drying tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2015)
