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.

”…utter perfection in Cabernet Sauvignon. Extraordinary power, fruit depth, and perfume (not dissimilar from its siblings’) as well as a seamlessness, monumental richness, and a staggering finish are the stuff of legends. Again, the dominant characteristics are creme de cassis, graphite, espresso, blackberries, chocolate, and subtle background new oak.” Robert Parker

“…these are profoundly great, world-class wines. If you can find any, don’t hesitate to buy them - you won’t regret it…there doesn’t appear to be a hotter Cabernet Sauvignon producer in the New World than this small boutique winery.” Robert Parker
