For more than a decade Schrader Cellars has produced benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon from the most prestigious vineyards in the Napa Valley - notably the first-growth Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. With winemaker Thomas Brown we have created wines known for their vibrant flavor and opulent richness. Our program focuses on highlighting the character and profile of three distinct clonal varieties with minimal intervention that allows the true nature of each to shine.
Ultimately, the wines speak for themselves. Schrader Cellars has garnered the highest critical acclaim in the history of American Cabernet Sauvignon production, where our 'no-holds barred' wines represent excellence at the highest level from vineyard practices through the careful bottling and delivery of each and every wine.
Our current portfolio is another extraordinary addition to the history books. Bottled in June, each of the 2014 Schrader wines has developed an exquisite profile that pays homage to the unique character of our three distinct Cabernet Sauvignon clones and vineyards. While the 2014 Vintages production is slightly down in quantity from the past few years, the quality of the vintage is excellent with it's distinct profile falling somewhere in between the 2012 and 2013 vintages.
Wine AdvocateCCS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon: I'll keep my notes short, since I'll be tasting this wine from bottle next year, but the 2014s from Schrader are among the highlights of this vintage, which is certainly an excellent one in Napa, but destined to be lost in the massive shadows cast by 2012 and 2013. The Cabernet Sauvignon CCS should ultimately score in the mid-90s, with the potential that it may reach the upper 90s. In any event, the wine came in at about 14.4% to 14.5% natural alcohol. It looks to be a super-duper vintage for Schrader; I do think if the 2014s turn out to be a better vintage certainly than 2011, they will still be behind both 2012 and 2013.
