2001 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 3L

Our 2001 Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 3L will be shipped in a Schrader Cellars wooden box.

While our first harvest from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard technically occurred the year before, in our hearts we feel the 2001 harvest marked our true “first” harvest as for the first time we were in the vineyard managing the farming practices for the full season. As with all things in life, there is no substitute for hands on experience; with a full year in the vineyard, we had gained a greater understanding of To Kalon’s capabilities and had honed our skills for cultivating this noble estate.

    Beckstoffer’s vineyard in Oakville, first planted in 1868 by viticultural and winemaking icon Hamilton Crabb, has long been regarded as the source of Napa Valley’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This section of the vineyard is situated in the heart of the valley. An alluvial fan provides excellent mineral deposits, and the rich soils are filled with marine sediment. The vines receive full sun and optimal heat during the day and are cooled by marine fog at night. These conditions allow each of the three clones planted in this vineyard (4, 6, and 337) to display its own unique character, and this celebration of individuality is the essence of Schrader.
