RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Lots of chocolate, mocha, blackberries. Sort of thick. Extremely dark. Is this made by taking wine and simmering it down a little?? Sort of delicious though. — 4 days ago

LPV Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The 2013 Schrader ‘LPV’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a truly thrilling wine from this storied Napa winery. This is the third vintage of this wine made by the esteemed Thomas Brown. The wine was aged for twenty months in French oak and utilizes both clone 4 and 337 from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras vineyard. The ‘LPV’ benefits from about an hour of air, as the wine gains immediate appeal with its downright sexy bouquet of red rose petals that emerge alongside creme de cassis, tar, mocha and sandalwood. Soft and generous on the mouth, this silky wine effortlessly dances across the mid-palate. The plush, seductive texture gives way to gobs of dense dark fruits, with sweet pipe tobacco, tar and Turkish coffee flavors all marching on parade. Truly a scintillating wine right now, as this will age for decades to come. Drink 2020-2040- 97

T6 Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Blueberry jam, blackberry jam, mocha, espresso, Christmas spices. Sort of amazing but also much too much of everything. Super dense. Maybe one adds water? Joke. Sort of. — 4 days ago

Double Diamond (Schrader)

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Schrader-lite as the pedigree would indicate. Similar strength and volume on the back of the palate though it kicks off a bit leaner early on. Doesn’t have that smooth yet grippy texture and finish. Amazing value though! #wheninamerica — a month ago

Sugarloaf Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2014

Because who doesn’t love to celebrate national Cab Franc day? @rudiuswines is Brittany & Jeff Ames label. Jeff was an early understudy to Thomas Brown, working on Schrader, Maybach, and Outpost amongst others while he developed his own client list, including Tor Kenward, Boich, and Anthem. It’s worth noting that the wines Jeff has produced for Tor have been some of my favorites for at least a decade.

The 2014 Rudius Cabernet Franc Sugarloaf Vineyard Napa Valley envelopes your plate with a captivating display of mouthwatering raspberry, savory loam, sweet tobacco, and just the right hint of bell pepper before the cocoa powder dusted finish rocks your world. Delicious is an understatement. This was so spectacular I opened it two nights in a row (run don’t walk to Sunshine and steal it for $40). #delicious

Old Sparky Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Entirely sourced from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, the 2009 Schrader ‘Old Sparky’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a massive, dense treat right now that has a long life ahead of it. The nose offers plenty of appeal with its espresso bean, chocolate cake, red bell pepper and creosote tones with blueberry pie that all march in line. Layers of chocolate infused dark fruits, blueberry compote and tar line this exquisite palate, with minerals and dusty terroir melding together in the glass. This wine walks the tight rope between finesse and power, effortlessly moving across the palate. Gorgeous now, this scintillating wine will cellar well for another twenty years.

Harbison Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

2nd best 11 I’ve had . Next to the 11 Schrader To-Kalon . 11’ Bevan Harrison. Close to a PnP. Needs to open up in the glass for 20-30 minutes. Blueberries, abundance of black fruit, licorice, leathery notes, light acidity. Fantastic 11’. — 2 months ago

Yeah that’s a different story, good on its own, almost pop & pour compared to other vintages. But its still $200.00 and up
