Schrader Old Sparky 2007 1.5L OWC


RP100 "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky exudes chocolate-covered cherries, espresso and licorice goodness with lavender and black olives accents over a core of blackberry preserves, plum pudding, raspberry pie and dried roses plus a waft of menthol. Wonderfully rich, opulent and full-bodied on the palate, the generous fruit is beautifully offset by a taut frame of grainy tannins and fantastic vivacity, finishing very long with an arresting perfume. Gorgeous." LPB Aug 2018
Schrader, Old Sparky Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
"Are readers totally confused about the multiple clonal experiments and single block Schrader Cabernet Sauvignons? All of them emanate from the Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard with one exception, the George III Vineyard in Rutherford. 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 wines one could possibly find in the world. Fred Schrader and his wife, Carol, hired Thomas Brown to make these wines. Their 2006s were among the finest wines of that vintage, their 2008s look to be among the top wines I tasted in that year, and the 2007s, universally acknowledged as a great vintage for Napa, are spectacular." RP Dec 2009
