Profile 

Our Schrader Colesworthy, named in honor of Carol Colesworthy Schrader, represents the highest expression of the remarkable Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard. Like our Schrader Old Sparky program, each vintage the wine is crafted from a handful of outstanding barrel lots from this acclaimed estate. Presented in magnum format, this luxurious wine offers prodigious aromatics with copious amounts of ripe blackberries layered with notes of vanilla, pencil shavings, crush stones and forest floor. This magnificent, pure Cabernet Sauvignon shows stunning intensity and brilliance with polished texture and perfect balance on the palate.

Vintage 

The 2016 vintage was marked early in the growing season by rains that helped to recharge the suffering aquifers with much needed rain that helped to alleviate the drought. As the growing season began flowering presented itself with a small crop that was helped through the season by near perfect summer weather. These ideal conditions continued through harvest where we were able to pick at optimal concentration. The resulting wines from this vintage have intense concentration with a great natural balance that likens itself to the consistent growing season.

Critical Praise 

Rated 97 Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Colesworthy opens with ripe, rich, bold crème de cassis, preserved plums and baked blueberries scents with hints of cumin seeds, star anise, mincemeat pie, mocha and new leather with wafts of tobacco, cedar and black tea. The full-bodied palate is very firm and muscular with bags of black fruits and spices, finishing very long. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
