2006 CCS

Our 2006 Beckstoffer To Kalon CCS Cabernet Sauvignon will be shipped in a Schrader Cellars wooden box.

From the moment the grapes arrived at the winery, we knew there was something very special about the 2006 vintage. Beautifully ripened and spectacularly structured, the harvest seamlessly progressed from fermentation to barrel, offering arresting plateaus of perfection all along the way. Every time we sampled the barrel lots, we remarked, "It couldn't get better than this." But it always did. Supremely compelling with purity and complexity, the 2006 Cabernets took hold of our hearts from the very beginning and never let go.

    First planted in 1868 by viticultural and winemaking icon Hamilton Crabb, To Kalon Vineyard® has long been regarded as the source of Napa Valley’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Within the prime vineyard blocks, an alluvial fan provides excellent and varied mineral deposits, and the rich soils are filled with marine sediment that gives our wines their distinctive profiles. The vines receive full sun and optimal heat during the day and are cooled by marine fog at night. These conditions allow the Cabernet Sauvignon planted in the vineyard to display its own unique character, and this celebration of individuality is the essence of Schrader ®.
