The 2002 Viader showcases the best the vintage has to offer: intense, upfront, concentrated dark fruit notes laced with licorice, chocolate, anise, earth and leather. Lingering, complex tannins firm up in the finish which is rounded by powerful floral aromas of blackberry, blueberry and mint. Although quite approachable now bottle aging will further develop bouquet and complexity. This powerful gem will continue to age superbly over the next two decades. Cheers! To a wonderfully elegant mountain beauty!
