Complex, elegant, spicy and balanced. Tightly wound, with an earthy, green olive edge to the spicy plum and currant notes. Contains Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2001 through 2008. 2,186 cases made.

A blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Cabernet Franc, from Viader's beautiful hillside vineyards, this 1996 is made in a polished, graceful style. Medium-bodied, with lush, herb-tinged, raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with mineral and lead pencil notes, this lovely, stylish, restrained offering already provides pleasant drinking, yet should keep for 10-12 years.

Robert Parker, December 1998
