Smoky, sweet, black and red currant aromas jump from the glass of this intriguing, saturated purple-colored wine. Some new oak is noticeable in the background. The wine's attack exhibits terrific purity of fruit, more acidity than many 1994s, and sweet, ripe tannin, all packed into a tightly wound, medium to full-bodied wine that only hints at its ultimate potential. This is not a large-scaled 1994, but it is a beautifully etched wine with considerable personality. I suspect it will be accessible when released in 1-2 years, but it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It is unquestionably another 20-year effort from this vintage.|Viader's elegant, complex, stylish wines often require more introspection than some of the more boldly-styled blockbusters that emerge from Napa. The objective at Viader is to produce the Cheval Blanc of Napa Valley. I will let readers be the judge of whether or not they are on the right track.|Note: Prices are listed only for those wines that are being pre-sold as futures by MacArthur Beverages in Washington, DC, the first American wine shop to offer California wine futures, which they have done for eleven consecutive years.|Tel.
