VIADER Proprietary Red, Napa Valley 2015

First crafted in 1989, the Viader 'Proprietary Red' is a Howell Mountain blend comprised of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Cabernet Franc. The mother/son winemaking team of Delia Viader, PhD and Alan Viader have created an awesome wine in this vintage. Benefiting from some air contact to be fully awoken, this slowly begins show its wonderful earthy terroir along with bell pepper, damp earth, sweet pipe tobacco and leather, all parading with dark and blue fruits on the nose. The tension, weight, mouthfeel and depth here is absolutely lovely as the wine offer a silky smooth texture on the mid-palate. The wine unveils a wonderful sense of place as flavors of blueberry compote, wild blackberry preserves, milk chocolate and roasted fig all mingle beautifully in the glass. Lightly tannic, this gorgeous effort possesses the characteristics for exceedingly long life in the cellar.
