A true powerhouse, this completely compelling pure clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon is all about everything in abundance, yet with everything in perfect balance. The wine opens with tremendous sticky, ripe aromas of red and black fruit complemented by brilliant notes of smoked herbs, provocative spice and sweet earth. Exceptionally concentrated, the massive fruit core of our Schrader T6 is amply supported by the wine's natural acidity and well-structured tannins that flex their power with grace and finesse through the unending finish.
"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard T6 is slightly riper and richer than the RBS with plenty of toasty oak intermixed with lead pencil shavings, cedarwood, baking spices, plums and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and delicious with 14.6% alcohol (slightly higher than the 2010), it should drink well for 10-12 years."
