2008 Schrader Cellars T-6 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet - 99 pts
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.

Rating 99 RP - 2008 Schrader Cellars T-6 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet - 99 pts The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 (Clone 6) could be given a perfect score, it’s that special. All of this is like splitting hairs, but this opaque purple-colored wine offers up lavish, luxurious notes of blueberries, black raspberries, black currants, licorice, cedar and grilled herbs. Extremely dense and opulent with a voluptuous texture, it has layer upon layer of fruit and depth, and a mindboggling finish that had me shaking my head in awe. Sadly, this amazing wine has the most limited production of all the Schrader wines, 150 cases. RP
