Schrader Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2019

$475

This has all the dense cassis, bitter plum and blackberry fruit you'd expect from an Oakville Cabernet, but these elements are married to a more overt energy than most of its peers, as bramble, anise and licorice root provide a bristling accent. Offers a great graphite underpinning through the finish, and has fruit to burn. One for the cellar. Best from 2024 through 2040. 200 cases made.
