Schrader Cellars Proprietary Red Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky 2004, 1.5L (WA98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Schrader Cellars Proprietary Red Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky

1.5L

Vintage: 2004
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA98
Rated 98 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky is made from clones 4, 6 and 337, the same as the Schrader, and comes from the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard as well. It tips the scales at the highest alcohol for them - 14.7%. It was aged 20 months in 80% Darnajou and 20% Taransaud and there are only 100 cases. This is a spectacular wine that is very sexy and forward, with great creme de cassis, and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of coffee, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and graphite. Full-bodied and layered, it is a sensational wine to drink now and over the next 20-25 years.?` -- Robert Parker in Issue #212 of the Wine AdvocateMore Information on this producer: `Winemaker Thomas Brown said it was easy to remember 2004 as a `hot and hotter vintage, especially the first 10-12 days of September.` The result was a tiny crop due to the 105-108 degree temperatures. The tiny productions included 100 cases of Old Sparky, 125 cases of RBS, 175 cases of CCS and 250 cases of the three-digit Cabernet Sauvignon Schrader. All these performed spectacularly well in my tastings, including the only perfect wine of the vintage.`
