Double Diamond (Schrader) Oakville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

$74.99

                 New release from Schrader Cellars, Napa's most sought-after producer. Back by popular demand following an unfathomable three year pause, Fred Schrader’s Double Diamond Cabernet is now available. Double Diamond, from the producers of Schrader, opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast and oak spice. The notes of herbs, pine cone and dried earth. In the mouth, the palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big, rich flavor.  In 2000, Fred Schrader launched Double Diamond, just two years after he founded Schrader Cellars in 1998, as part of his ongoing mission to make the most exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon that Napa Valley could offer. These wines, as you know, are crafted by renowned winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, who has remarkably led Schrader Cellars to an unprecedented record of twenty four 100-pt. scores during their 18-year partnership.

Unbending purple-black. Lovely nose of lavender and thyme, dusty black cherry, dried blackberry and ripe black currant, as well as a lovely mint moment of varietal introspection. Vanilla and cedar remain in check, as oak bolsters without overwhelming. A thing of beauty. Intense black cherry and currant wash over a scree of firm tannins. Great backbone, stellar integration. Strangely, I’m drinking it, but looking forward to the next bottle? Hmm. The purity of the fruit shines through with raspberry and dried strawberry notes making spirit cameos alongside Connecticut tobacco, plum and Roobios tea, but also an unusual citrus and leather-pepper. I wasn’t expecting so many differing fruit profiles , and such un-manipulated purity of grape expression. Great job! No need for makeup and plastic surgery for this action star! #schrader #doublediamond #schradercellars #napacab #napawine #napawinning #oakville #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #schraderdoublediamond
