2016 Schrader Double Diamond Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

The Schrader name is synonymous with outstanding, high-scoring Napa Valley Cabernet that is very limited and very expensive. The Double Diamond Oakville Cabernet label brings these high level, quality wines to a larger audience at a more affordable price. Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown has made so many 100 pt and near perfect wines, we've lost count. 

With their lush flavors and food-friendly profile, the Double Diamond Cabernet Sauvignons is considered a darling of the Schrader portfolio. The program focuses on two outstanding growing regions — the Napa Valley, renowned for producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignons, and the mountaintop Beckstoffer Amber Knolls Vineyard — situated in the heart of the Red Hills Lake County appellation.

The Double Diamond wines prove to be spectacularly rich and concentrated, with profiles characterized by dark red, blue fruit, and soft spice flavors. Handcrafted by winemaker Thomas Brown, these bright and accessible wines are ripe and ready-to-enjoy upon release, bringing exceptional quality and flavor that cannot be beat.

About the Winery 

There is not much to be said about Schrader that hasn't already made headlines. Fred Schrader, an art and antiquity trader, attended the Napa Valley wine auction in the late 90's. He fell in love with Napa and then met Andy Beckstoffer and Thomas Rivers Brown. From that time, they sourced outstanding fruit from the To Kalon vineyard and set the wine world ablaze with some of the most sought after, collectable and delicious Napa Valley Cabernets ever created.

Reviews

It's hard to imagine a wine with the Schrader name on it that scores less than 95pts. The wines are consistently vibrant, delicious, and fruit forward, but balanced and easy to drink. This is the most accessibly priced Schrader wine from a line of wines that are often very difficult to acquire. ~ 95pts BHW Staff
