2016 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - CCS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1389595 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The most structured and backward in the lineup, yet with incredible potential, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is a monumental bottle of wine that ticked all my boxes. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 100% new Darnajou barrels, it reveals a deep purple color as well as a myriad of blueberry and cassis fruits, candied violets, spice box, and licorice, with just a hint of background oak and a lead pencil note. With a full-bodied, layered, thrilling texture, masses of ripe tannins, and a more focused and elegant style than usual for this cuvée, forget bottles for 4-5 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy over the following 25+ years.

99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark White pepper, fresh herbs and dark berries. Black truffles. Full body and layers of lightly austere tannins. It’s powerful and enchanting. Needs three to four years to come around. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS has exuberant notes of plum preserves, baked blackberries and warm cassis with notions of cedar, pencil lead, Indian spices and Sichuan pepper plus a touch of rose hip tea. Very firm and structured in the full-bodied mouth, the palate is laden with tightly wound black and blue fruit layers, lifted by an exciting line of freshness and finishing on a lingering perfumed note.

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Features a deep well of dark currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors, shrouded for now in ganache and roasted vanilla notes. Shows tarry grip on the back end, with good latent energy and a finishing kick of fruit. Wait this out with some cellaring. (JM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
