    Winemaker's Notes:

    Each vintage, this master blend of Schrader's benchmark "Old Sparky" is created from the most profound barrel lots in their cellar. This exceptionally rare wine is presented in magnum or chateau formats only.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky, made from clone 4, 6 and 337, displays a dense opaque purple color as well as an incredible nose of graphite, cedarwood, incense, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, vanillin and abundant blackberry and black currant liqueur. Gorgeously rich and textured with a nearly endless finish, this super intense, full throttle wine needs 5-7 years of bottle age and should drink well over the following 25-30 years. It was aged 20 months in 100% new oak barrels.

    The Wine Advocate

    Impeccably balanced, with powerful currant, dark berry, mocha, floral and cedar notes, this wine begs for cellaring, and has only begun to reveal its depth and dimensions. Ends with chewy, gripping, ripe, flavorful tannins.
