International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91($75) Saturated medium ruby. Aromatic, high-pitched nose combines cassis, crushed blackberry, mocha, iron, leather, exotic spices and pencil lead, all lifted by pepper and eucalyptus notes. Sweet, fat and lush, with tangy flavors of black fruits and minerals. This boasts a solid middle and a lot of personality for a 2000. Finishes ripely tannic and long.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2003

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.
