The 2005 Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon, which is the estate's flagship wine, is the most backward and tannic of these cuvees. Densely colored, reserved, and restrained, it boasts stunning purity and virtually all of the characteristics of its siblings, just more structure and aging potential. With time, it will catch up to some of the more forward wines, but for now, it needs 4-5 years of cellaring, and should drink well for two decades or more.

Exotic spicy, toasty, cedary oak turns taut, with firm, chewy, loamy earth, currant, anise, sage and mineral flavors that are tightly wound. Finishes with full-bodied tannins that beg for short-term cellaring. 150 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.
