Winemaker's Notes:

We are proud to present our portfolio of 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon wines from two of Napa Valley's most prestigious and historic vineyard estates—the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville and the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford. With both outstanding locations, we combine meticulous vineyard management with "no holds barred" winemaking practices to produce elegant wines of exceptional depth, richness, and character that we feel are the highest and most authentic expression of these noble vineyards.

Schrader's portfolio of Cabernet Sauvignons present both single clone wines and ultimate-blend clone wines of distinctive character, superb texture, and outstanding quality.

About Schrader Cellars:

Founded in 1998 by Fred Schrader, Schrader Cellars is dedicated to bringing together the finest vineyard and winemaking resources available to create full-throttle, unbridled wines of great distinction and complex structure. Their programs focus on classic grape varietals grown in the famed Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, and the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford. They are handcrafted by winemaker Thomas Brown in very limited quantities and are often defined by a single clone of a grape variety, a specific block within a remarkable vineyard or, in some cases, a matrix for the two. This intricate and involved method offers an extremely provocative and rewarding exploration of the influence of clone selection and terroir on the resulting wine.
