Rich explosive aromatics showing vibrant red and black fruits, layers of tobacco, dark cocoa, hints of wet stone and caramel. A complex medley of flavors on the palate recalls black cherry and currants. The wine softly builds intensity towards the finish. The initial silky entry is followed by a fuller mid-palate and finishes with strong powerful tannins. The 2013 Viader certainly makes a deliciously bold statement. DRINK/HOLD over the next 7–15 years.
