Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard 2014 (Magnum)Schrader Cellars
€ 1.148,29 (in Vat)
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky, Fred Schrader?s favorite selection, is clone 4 from the To Kalon Vineyard aged in 100% new Darnajou and seems closest in personality and overall style to the CCS. This is a beautiful wine with great intensity and seems to be one of the superstars of this vintage. Smoky barbecue notes intermix with charcoal embers, blackberry, cassis, Christmas fruitcake, licorice and camphor.
Winespectator / James Suckling (97)
JS: This is really savory with so much meat, currant, mushroom and walnut-skin character. Full-bodied, layered and very powerful. A touch of heat on the finish, but the acid balances it out. Extreme intensity. Contrasty and fascinating. Best eight barrels. Only magnums.
