Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon | All Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon

From the Producer

A harmonious integration of decadent fruit, refined structure, and exotic spice components. In the glass, the wine possesses a dark plum-purple hue. Intriguing aromatic notes of Mexican chocolate, nutmeg, brambly fruit, spearmint, and violets swell from the glass in concert. Upon entry, the mouthfeel is voluptuous, sleek, and inviting, while also exhibiting a silky tannin profile to provide a complex framework. Rich palate notes suggest black currant, blackberry reduction, leather, crushed rock, and allspice. This wine is very enjoyable and showing well today, but with 3–5 years in the cellar it will develop into an even more beautiful expression of the vintage.

Critical Acclaim

WE94 Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2021

"A Schrader-related wine made by Thomas Rivers Brown, this 100% varietal wine is a showcase of the appellation, wide in appeal and bold, ripe red fruit. Sage, tar, cedar and pencil provide varietal complexity and contrast to the fruit; the tannins are integrated yet still grippy. Enjoy best from 2028–2038." (94 pts.)

SP91 Wine Spectator Nov 15, 2020

"This has a rounded, fleshy feel to the mix of creamed plum and cassis flavors. Light flashes of sassafras and loam provide that Oakville hint, while the fruit holds sway overall. Drink now through 2024. 9,000 cases made." (91 pts.)

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Jan 2021

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Diamond is a new label, made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in French oak, 50% new, for 16 months. Around 80% of the fruit was sourced from To Kalon vineyard. It is deep garnet-purple in color, springing from the glass with notes of crushed black cherries, warm cassis, wild blueberries and chocolate mint, plus a waft of dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruits, framed by plush tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and spicy. 9,000 cases were made." (91 pts.)

JD95 Jeb Dunnuck January 27, 2021

"Readers looking to get a taste of the impeccable quality and style from Schrader at a more affordable price point would do well to check out the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Diamond. Coming all from Oakville, it has a classic Cabernet nose of black and blue fruits, green tobacco, cedar pencil, damp earth, and chocolate. It’s not over the top and has beautiful varietal character as well as medium to full body, ripe yet present tannins, good overall freshness, and a great finish. This is beautifully done and well worth a case purchase. I’d lean toward drinking bottles over the coming 10–12 years, but I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve longer. It’s a candidate for the best Napa Cabernet under $100." (95 pts.)

JS94 JamesSuckling.com Wednesday, January 27, 2021

"An elegant, fruit-driven cabernet sauvignon with notes of red fruit and spices. Fresh herbs, such as thyme. It’s full-bodied and well balanced. The texture is pleasant and smooth with elegant tannins. The finish is long and flavorful. Drink or hold." (94 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
