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.
"Deep, rich, pure and extracted, exhibiting more focused plum, crème de cassis, wild raspberry and purity than the other Schraders. The flavors dance, with more fruit, a shade less earth, and lots of finesse and polish. Ends with a long finish. Drink now through 2024."
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Schrader, which comes from Clones 4, 6 and 337, is slightly more structured and perhaps not as velvety as the CCS or RBS. Again, blue fruits, black fruits, camphor, charcoal and burning ember characteristics are presented in a full-bodied, powerful style that balances intensity with elegance and an uncanny equilibrium. This is another stunning wine that should benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and keep for 25-30+ years. Rating: 98+"
