Schrader Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2002, 750mL (WA98+, WS96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Schrader Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2002
Region: US
Appellation: Oakville, Napa
Condition: scl

WA98+, WS96
Rated 98+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard was the tightest of this trio, with an inky/opaque purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of black truffles, licorice, asphalt, barbecue smoke, and oodles of blueberry and black currant fruit. Full-bodied, with striking purity and a layered, multidimensional texture, its youthful vigor and exuberance suggest a 2- to 3-year-old wine, rather than one that is a decade old. Assuming you can defer your gratification (and I really cannot offer any justification to do so), this wine will improve for at least another 5-10 years, and last for an additional 15+. Like its siblings, this is a Napa Valley legend.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `When you have extremely conscientious owners (Carol and Fred Schrader) combined with world-class winemaking (Thomas Rivers Brown), and an unimpeachable source for grapes (the first-growth terroir of the Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard), it should not be surprising that outstanding wines are produced. All three of these 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvees emerge from that magical tenderloin spot in the Oakville Corridor. You could probably have these three wines on twenty different occasions and reach a different qualitative order, but there is no doubt that any of the wines could be your favorite on any given day - they are that spectacular. During this period, all three were aged in 100% new French oak (which continues), all Darnajou barrels.`
