    Wine Advocate Notes
    95-97 Points, Robert Parker Jr., Wine Advocate: All of the 2015s will be reviewed from bottle next year, but basically the yields were not off as much at Schrader as some other estates, the alcohol levels were relatively modest ranging between 14.3% and 14.5%. Characteristic of this vintage, there is magnificent fat, sucrosity and thickness on display in all of these wines. They are inky black/purple and seemingly low in acidity, but according to Thomas Rivers Brown the acids were quite sound and healthy. The tannins are present, but so well-disguised by the high levels of glycerin and sucrosity that they are not that noticeable. Several of these wines, including the Schrader, CCS, T6 and LPV have the potential for perfect scores. These will be thrilling to taste next year and will continue the incredible legacy that Schrader Cellars has developed over the years." 10/16
    James Suckling Notes
    97 Points, James Suckling: "Blueberries and dark chocolate with fresh herbs and hazelnut shell. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Delicious and succulent fruit. Softness and freshness to the tannin tension. Drink in 2020." 5/18
    98 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "All from clone 337 and from three different blocks in the To Kolan Vineyard in Oakville, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS is one of the larger production cuvee they make and there's just over 1,000 cases in 2015. Crème de cassis, iodine, flowers, huge spice, and loads of dried herbs all emerge from this thrilling effort that has the full-bodied opulence of the vintage front and center. Despite it's massive about of fruit, it stays light and graceful and is an undeniably sexy wine to drink over the coming two decades." 12/17
