Winemaker's Notes

We are proud to present Schrader's portfolio of 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon wines from one of Napa Valley's most prestigious and historic vineyard estates—the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville in Rutherford. With this outstanding location, Schrader combines meticulous vineyard management with "no holds barred" winemaking practices to produce elegant wines of exceptional depth, richness, and character that Schrader feels are the highest and most authentic expression of the noble vineyard.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense and multifaceted, exhibiting dense, detailed currant, spice, chocolate brownie, creme de cassis and mocha flavors. Focused and persistent, building depth and gaining length. Best from 2014 through 2030."
95 Points

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Schrader Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is one of the more plush, overt wines in this lineup. There is tremendous depth in the fruit in this massive, sweeping wine. The aromas and flavors build towards the cascading finish. The Schrader is a decidedly big, muscular wine that emphasizes power over detail. The Schrader is predominantly clone 4 from the D2 block, with a dollop of clone 6 from the D2 block and clone 337 from the B2 block. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. "

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
