Schrader Cellars Old Sparky Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (1500ml)

$1599.99

Limited new release from Schrader Cellars. This is a Magnum (1.5L) bottle. 100 Points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky, which is essentially made from clone 4 from two separate blocks, clone 6 and clone 337, is another perfect wine from the Schraders. I suppose it’s a little boring to say, and perhaps I can be accused of creating unrealistic expectations on the part of readers, but this is as great as Cabernet can be. Tasting like a first-growth Pauillac, the wine is opaque purple and has a fabulous nose of lead pencil, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry and the telltale cassis. There is also some licorice and sweet oak, the tannins are ripe, and the wine full-bodied. Built like a skyscraper, with an incredible finish (like most of these wines) going on for 50 seconds to a minute, this amazing wine should still be drinking splendidly well at age 25 or 30."

Byob. Truly a great wine. One of those you think "I hope I don't love this wine because it was 100 pts WA", but damn it's impossible not to love. So complex, so luscious.
