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 Beckstoffer To Kalon RBS Cabernet 2012 was made from Clone 337.

”…a boatload of crème de cassis, incense, licorice, graphite and vanilla along with plenty of spice box and forest floor. This is a killer, full-bodied, super-duper, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20 years.

”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
