2012 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1183293 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS, which is also from Clone 337 but from different blocks on the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, saw oak with 90% new Darnajou and 10% new Taransaud. This wine seems slightly more expansive, shares the black ruby/purple color with all of it siblings, and has 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is another wine endowed with fabulous overall balance. Hints of blueberry pie, jam, mocha, sweet spices, violets and lavender open up in the glass. Even with all of its obvious intensity, there is a translucence and weightlessness to the 2012 that is utterly mesmerizing. The RBS is rich and powerful, but never heavy. Schrader's RBS is Clone 337 Cabernet, which often yields perfumed, supple Cabernets. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A big and rich wine with blueberry, spice and green coffee bean. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Very extracted. Yet intense and rich. Inner quote mark (7/2015)
