Viader Vineyards Napa Valley Red Wine 2012
|Region||California, 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's Wine Advocate
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.
