RP96+ "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."RP Jun 2015
Schrader, 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."
