RP100 "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS (14.6% alcohol and 175 cases) is absolutely out of this world. I have given more perfect scores to this cuvée than any of the other Schrader wines. Made from Clone 4 with slight additions of Clone 6 and 337, it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, like all these wines from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. This wine has a glorious nose of licorice, cedar wood, vanillin, creme de cassis, blackberry and graphite. Super-rich and velvety, with sweet, supple tannins, an opulent full-bodied mouthfeel, and a skyscraper-like finish, this prodigious wine is drinking beautifully, and just now coming into its adolescence. It should go on for another 20-25 years." RP Jun 2015
Schrader, CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
"As long-time readers realize, the Schrader project is a clonal micro-terroir look at different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon from the famous Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. The consulting winemaker from the beginning of this project has been Thomas Rivers Brown. The year 2005 marked the first vintage made at one of his other client’s wineries, Outpost. The fascinating thing is, these wines taste young, with 30-40 years of aging potential! The differences are likely to become more apparent with cellaring. Not to my surprise, their 2005s tasted like 3- or 4-year-old wines, all incredibly impressive, and all a treat to drink even now. That said, all of them have three decades or more cellaring potential."
