2016 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - T6" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1393226 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is more structured and savory, with an incredibly bloody, iron-like character that gives way to awesome notes of incense, spice, tobacco leaf, and black cherry and cassis fruits. Aged 20 months in 95% new oak, this dense, meaty, blockbuster effort needs to be forgotten for at least 5-6 years, at which point it should cruise for 25-30 years. It’s a killer bottle of wine. 98+ Inner quote mark (1/2019)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fascinating aromas of blackberries, orange peel and walnuts follow through to a medium to full body, dark fruit and hints of dried and fresh herbs. Dark chocolate, too. Firm tannins. Linear and great length. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard T6 has a gregarious nose of Chinese five spice, cardamom, menthol and cigar box over a core of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote with a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and oh-so-decadent in the mouth, it has a firm yet plush frame and an epically long, spicy finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark On the ripe and showy side, with peacocking flavors of creamed plum, cassis and cherry preserves, while the back end draws in a healthy shot of toasted vanilla and dark licorice. The graphite-edged finish pulls all the elements together, adding cut and detail to the fruit. (JM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
