    January 12, 2015 - funny enough others said drink this now, i found this to be still young / big and rich / in your face / a bit hot… maybe it is just stylistic (which style i don't like) or maybe it just needed more time… was unpleasant on days one and two, almost poured it out… then was better on night three, but still not yet great

    March 29, 2014 - Wow. No one would guess that this wine is 22 years old. It has nicely balanced acidity with soft tannins and plenty of fruit. The nose is classic Cali Cab although it is only 60% cab...great mouth feel as well. This one was built to age but at or past peak.

    September 24, 2008 - What I love about this wine is that you can actually taste the heavy cabernet franc influence, 39% in this vintage if I remember right. Most California wineries bake the acidity right out of this grape or oak it into generic chocolateyness. But this wine still has a serious acidic spine which gives it a real edginess. There is power here but the power comes from tension at least as much as from sheer concentration. At the same time the fruit is still rich and glossy without being syrupy or over the top. Part of me wishes there were more California wines like this, but then I sort of like the fact that Viader is such a unique creature unto itself. I'll have to revisit other vintages soon.

    February 4, 2006 - Deep nose, very red with chocolate covered cherry and minty tobacco notes. Surprisingly youthful - challenges my opinion of Viader as a 10-year wine. Well structured, almost too much so. Excellent Viader.
