Schrader Cellars' CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon, Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 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.

“Just a prodigious wine, this spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon is inky bluish/purple with a gorgeous nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, a touch of background toast and graphite. It has a very full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like finish. It is fabulously open, sexy and a total thrill to smell and taste.” Robert Parker

"The Schraders, working with well-known winemaking consultant Thomas Rivers Brown, continue to farm and produce some of the world’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons from three fabulous Beckstoffer-owned vineyards: the To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, the Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford and the Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena.” Robert Parker
