2021 Heritage Clone


Our To Kalon Vineyard Heritage Clone is sourced from blocks that are planted with a unique and likely "suitcase clone" brought over from Bordeaux by Robert Mondavi himself. Densely fruited and plush with lively acidity for balance, this is an elegant and expressive wine that offers a provocative range of flavors such as ripened red cherries, chocolate shavings, mandarin orange rind, and sweet earth. The Schrader Heritage Clone delivers on the vision of Napa Valley greatness imagined by Robert Mondavi decades ago.

    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.
