Schrader RBS To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, Napa Valley, California
- Pick-up only
The grapes used in creating this wine came from the Beckstoffer Family's portion of H. W. Crabb's original To Kalon Vineyard, which was established in 1868.
Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points Lots of violets, flowery incense, cassis, and spice notes emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS, a full-bodied, silky, elegant 2019 that shines just as much for its purity and balance as its richness and depth. Possessing good acidity, a lively, vibrant mouthfeel, supple tannins, and a great finish, it has plenty of up-front appeals yet should easily evolve for a solid 20 years if properly stored. Best After 2021
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 97 Points The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is Clone 337, matured 18 months in 100% new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels. Marked on the nose by red berries, cherries, and cedar, plus delicate cinnamon and clove shadings, this is a plush, concentrated, full-bodied wine with a core of firmness to it and a long, lingering finish, both positive signs for aging. It's one of the more approachable Schrader wines this vintage, but it should easily go another two decades. Best After 2025. Rating: 97+
James Suckling 97 Points Racy, dark nose with pulpy character. Dried lychee, lavender, and sandalwood. This is quite juicy, ample, and almost a bit ethereal, despite the color and high alcohol. There is a fine twist of salinity on the palate that runs smoothly with lots of purple flowers. Really immaculate. Almost soft texture.
Wine Spectator 96 Points Gushes with pure violet, plum, and cassis notes, all flecked with hints of black tea, anise, and sassafras. Driven, with a graphite underpinning providing a spine that stays in the background as the fruit stretches out. It is approachable already, but no rush at all. Drink now
