Fred Schrader startede Schrader Cellars i 1998, med det mål at lave Napa Valley’s bedste Cabernet Sauvignon. Siden starten har vingården været kendt som et fantastisk brand med store vinmarker som Beckstoffer to Kalon, Las Piedras og George lll – Og samtidig have en utrolig dygtig vinmager Thomas Brown.
Thomas Brown startede sin karriere som ”cellar rat” hos Turley Cellars og herefter fik han første store job hos Schrader. Sammen fik de to første 100 point fra Robert Parker i deres 2002 årgang. Siden da har Thomas Brown/Schrader fået 27 100 point scores fra The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Jeb Dunnuck og James Suckling. Han er en af bedst betalte konsulenter af samme grund.
Dette er et blend af forskellige kloner fra marken Beskstoffer to Kalon. Samt de bedste fade som bliver blendet sammen. En vin som kan smides i kælderen og bare ligge.
En vin der har brombær, blåbær, mørk chokolade, ristet kaffe- maskuline tanniner dog stadig ren, fyldig og super koncentreret.
20 måneder på sjældne Darnajou franske fade. Vinmarken er fra 1868 og kendt for at have outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon druer. Druerne får optimal sol og varme i løbet af dagen, og så kølet ned af tåge om natten fra havet.
100 Pts. “Produced predominately from clone 4, as always, the “Old Sparky” label is a best barrel selection from Beckstoffer’s To Kalon vineyard in Oakville. The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard was aged in 100% new Darnajou and Taransaud French oak barrels for 18 months. Deep garnet-purple in color, it needs a little coaxing to begin to reveal fragrant notions of crushed black currants, mulberries, juicy red and black plums and lilacs with hints of dark chocolate, rose oil and tilled soil plus a waft of unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is rich yet not at all heavy, featuring loads of bright red fruit accents among the profound black berry and savory elements. Multilayered, shimmering with energy and beautifully perfumed, it has gorgeous, ripe, plush tannins and a lively backbone, finishing very long and mineral laced. Bottled in magnums, 418 nine-liter cases were made.”
– Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
100 Pts. “There are few vintages of Old Sparky that don’t merit a perfect rating, and the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky isn’t one of them. This flawless wine offers up a wild smorgasbord of aromas and flavors, with loads of creme de cassis, blueberries, scorched earth, lead pencil, violets, blood orange, tobacco. and flowery incense all developing with time in the glass. Deep purple-hued and incredibly full-bodied, it has ripe, silky tannins, perfect balance, and a finish that won’t 9uit. This magical wine stays weightless and elegant on the palate, never seeming heavy, cumbersome, or over the top, and it’s a wine that just begs to be drunk yet will evolve for decades. Hats off to winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown for yet another heavenly Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that could come from nowhere else in the world. Life is too short not to have experienced this cuvee!”
