Exquisitely aromatic, this gorgeous perfume-like wine is the pure essence of Cabernet. Upon entry, luxurious aromas of cassis, plums, and violets wrap the senses, giving way to alluring notes of sweet spice, crushed flowers and elegant wet gravel minerality. Velvety smooth and plush with exceptional balance, the vibrancy and finesse of this wine carry through to the generous finish.

Wine SpectatorCombines power with finesse, though at this point the torque wins out, pushing this into overdrive. Tiers of spice, flowers and dark and red berry, with notes of licorice, flow before the tannins clamp down, giving the wine a chewy aftertaste. Ends with a teasing lift. Best from 2016 through 2030. 410 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is the most tannic of these cuvees. It exhibits an opaque purple color along with a big, intense perfume, but the wine is closed, structured, muscular and masculine in the mouth. There are only 52 cases, compared to 370 cases in 2012, so good luck finding any. This offering was made from clone 4, 6 and 337, making it one of the few multiple clone wines in the Schrader portfolio. Give this 2010 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years.
