Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

($75; 15.8% alcohol) Superripe aromas of roasted berries, mocha and dark chocolate, plus a hint of eucalyptus. Huge, dense and broad; a massive wine with almost port-like confectionery ripeness. A bit monolithic today and in need of a few years of bottle aging. Finishes very long, with suave, fine tannins and a sweet note of chocolate.

More mature and evolved (or maybe it just has more to it), the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard tastes like a great vintage of Pontet-Canet or Mouton Rothschild. This profound Napa Cabernet Sauvignon reveals gorgeous notes of creme de cassis, a celestial floral and espresso character, an inky/purple color, a dense full-bodied mouthfeel and hints of wood smoke and a volcanic/burning ember note. Quite intense with a prodigious mouthfeel and a nearly 60-second finish, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for another quarter of a century. Bravo! Both of these wines performed even better than they did when I tasted them from bottle eight years ago.

Very rich and also firmly tannic, with complex aromas of dried tobacco, expresso bean, cedar, currant and dark berry. Full-bodied and muscle-bound, long on the finish, with a dry, savory aftertaste. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2018. 295 cases made.

About This Producer


Schrader's mission statement is essentially one where their 30-year leases on vineyard parcels give them the ability to present a specific clonal study of Cabernet Sauvignon from three highly desired clones (4, 6, and 337) grown within a single vineyard. The bottom line is that with their production averages about 1,600 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wines do have subtle differences, but most importantly, all of them are extraordinary in quality - among the finest Cabernets in California. Fred Schrader and his wife, Carol, hired Thomas Brown to make these wines.
