Schrader Cellars' CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon, Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 was rated 100 points by Robert Parker.

Schrader Cellars is as much a scientific exploration of grape varieties as it is creative brilliance and its vineyard parcels are planted with different high quality clones of Cabernet Sauvignon (4, 6, and 337), producing only around 1500 cases each vintage. Each clone, managed by Fred and Carol Schrader (and winemaker Thomas Brown), produces extraordinary quality Cabernets – among the finest in California. Schrader's CCS Cabernet Sauvignon was made from Clone 4.

“…absolutely out of this world. I have given more perfect scores to this cuvée than any of the other Schrader wines. Made from Clone 4 with slight additions of Clone 6 and 337, it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, like all these wines from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. This wine has a glorious nose of licorice, cedar wood, vanillin, creme de cassis, blackberry and graphite. Super-rich and velvety, with sweet, supple tannins, an opulent full-bodied mouthfeel, and a skyscraper-like finish, this prodigious wine is drinking beautifully, and just now coming into its adolescence.” Robert Parker
