Had these with a friend and collegue from Georgia whoms' a believer that there's no life after Bud Lite. Brief notes as they're from memory and I wasn't paying too much attention. The Far was nice but seemed to have too short a finish to make it outstanding. On the oter appendage the Gallo was absolutely stunning. Seamless integration of fruit, flavors and finish. Definately a 90+. Still had some rounded tannins to carry it 5 more before peaking. The Viader has become one of my top 10 favorites and this vintage showcased ebberthin'. Roses and Violets leapt from the glass. Hand-woven silk entry. Great center and a 5 lapper finish. All at the bar agreed that 'twas indeed a superlative bottle of juice. A solid 96/100 now as it was under 30 by the box. WW
