Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96+

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Schrader (14.7% alcohol) is a wine of great intensity, but surprisingly the most closed of these five offerings in 2005. It needs another 3-4 years of cellaring at the minimum. Blackcurrants, licorice, incense and some toast make up the restrained, but intensely aromatic personality of this wine. It is full-bodied, super-pure, and as far as structure, is probably the most austere of all the 2005s.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
