The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Schrader, which comes from Clones 4, 6 and 337, is slightly more structured and perhaps not as velvety as the CCS or RBS. Again, blue fruits, black fruits, camphor, charcoal and burning ember characteristics are presented in a full-bodied, powerful style that balances intensity with elegance and an uncanny equilibrium. This is another stunning wine that should benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and keep for 25-30+ years.

98+ points, Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate (Issue # 192 - Dec 2010)

Deep, rich, pure and extracted, exhibiting focused plum, crème de cassis and wild raspberry flavors that dance, with more fruit, a shade less earth and lots of finesse and polish. Ends with a long finish. Drink now through 2024. 225 cases made.
