International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 90

Full ruby-red. Deep aromas of black raspberry, plum, black cherry, redcurrant, tobacco, licorice and sweet butter; an initially dusty element dissipated with aeration. Plummy and lush; at once fat and stylish, with suave oak tones and a big chocolatey middle. Finishes with substantial, slightly dusty tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 126

The terrific 1997 Proprietary Red is the finest Viader I have tasted. It is a wine of exceptional finesse and elegance, yet undeniable richness and intensity. This blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Cabernet Franc tastes like a top Graves from Bordeaux. Subtle spicy oak emerges from this dark ruby/purple-colored wine, along with scents of black currants, minerals, and lead pencil. In the mouth, earthy, terroir characteristics combine with sweet black fruits in this medium-bodied, rich wine. There is a juicy mid-palate as well as considerable grace and harmony in the finish. The tannin is largely obscured by the wine's outstanding concentration.
