    March 29, 2017 - This needed 3-4 hours to open up, at which point it became a luscious mountain fruit beast, well balanced from the cab franc and (surprisingly) resolved tannins. Really enjoyed. I think Viader is suffering from some bottle variation as this was dramatically better than prior bottles.

    January 22, 2016 - Opened and consumed over three days, stored under vacuum. Still a solid BDX blend from a wonderful producer. Largely consumed by itself, but would be wonderful with a steak frites or coq au vin.

    September 4, 2015 - NR. Too young, unfair to rate today. Big and tannic, still in the cradle

    March 29, 2015 - I am a huge fan of Viader wines and the winery itself is amazing to sit and drink wine while overlooking the vineyard; however, I wish I could continue with an upbeat review. I have found on more than one occasion that the Viader wines, even when stored in a temperature controlled wine cellar, do not keep as long as they should. This 2009 is very light and is tasting more like a pinot noir than a big boy cab that cost over $100...very disappointing.

    June 11, 2013 - Cab. Franc shows itself in the nose with some floral notes. Flavors on the palate include red currant, cherry and chocolate. Overall I am a fan of Viader and this doesn't disappoint.
