2016 Viader Napa Valley Proprietary Red...$179.99
This beautifully bold wine is made from 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Cabernet Franc. It opens in thick tannins and burly black fruit before unfurling slowly in the glass to reveal savory elements of crushed rock and dried herb. Lavender, licorice and toasted oak ride a secondary wave of complex flavor. Enjoy this in due time, ideally from 2024–2030.
