2021 Schrader Old Sparky Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum (1500ml)
Schrader Cellars has received thirty-seven perfect 100-point scores from top wine reviewers – more than any other winery in the Napa Valley.
The most coveted bottling in the Schrader portfolio, Old Sparky Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a section of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard that is planted on rich soils containing ancient marine sediment and an alluvial fan that provides excellent mineral deposits. It is a blend of only the best barrels from the vintage. Aged in 100% new Darnajou and Taransaud French oak barrels.
The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky is all Cabernet Sauvignon that's 50% from the D2 block that made the T6 Cuv e (this is clone 6) and the equal parts from RBS and Schrader releases. Released only in magnum, it reveals a dense purple hue as well as incredible aromatics of red, blue, and black fruits interwoven with graphite, a liqueur of rocks like minerality, and spring flowers. It's a killer bottle of wine that offers full-bodied richness, a deep, powerful mid-palate, incredible tannins, and a finish that won't quit. This beauty is going to blow you away anytime over the coming 25-30 years. It's heavenly stuff. Drink 2023-2053.
