Brick red. Cocoa driven dark red fruit. This must not have had much acid in its youth as it's not maintained much structure in its 12 years. Tasty, but nothing special.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review50% Petit Verdot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Red-ruby. Black cherry, flowers, iron and mint on the nose. Supple on entry, then less sweet in the middle than the proprietary blend; more backward and dominated by its structure. Light notes of meat and tobacco. Clings nicely on the back end, which offers notes of tobacco and black licorice. A sample of the petit verdot component of the '99 bottling showed more fully expressed, riper, more floral black fruit flavors, firm acidity and excellent length. Viader may yet add a pinch of this stuff to the cabernet blend "to add weight to the middle."

This restrained 1998 (a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Cabernet Franc) recalls a Medoc claret. The wine unfolds gracefully on the palate to reveal flavors of black currants, tar, earth, creamy vanillin, and subtle oak. A medium to full-bodie... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1998 Viader Vineyards Proprietary Red Wine 750ml
