Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard 2010 Schrader Cellars
|Label||label very slightly wrinkled|
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is the biggest and most powerful of these wines. It possesses serious depth and power. Layers of dark red and black fruit are woven together in this full-bodied, intense wine. In 2010 Sparky balances intensity with elegance and a totally seamless expression of fruit. Gorgeous, perfumed notes linger on the structured virile finish. This is a great way to end the tasting at Schrader. Old Sparky is built on a core of clone 6, with complementary amounts of clone 4 and clone 337. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

Delivers a rich, potent mix of layered flavors that are deep and pure, brimming with black licorice, dark berry, mocha, tea and floral notes that are tight, focused and persistent, with gutsy tannins.
