Lot #525. Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard MB 2017

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94-96 JD.
"Coming from the To Kalon vineyard, yet from the 3-acre Monastery Block owned by the estate of Robert Mondavi, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Monastery Block is all clone 169 of Cabernet and is aging in 100% new Darnajou barrels. It has a more focused, structured style compared to the Beckstoffer grown fruit and offers impressive amounts of cassis, graphite, new leather, and crushed rocks, with a Pauillac-like stature compared to the more overt sexiness of the other cuvées. With full-bodied richness, a deep, layered texture, and no shortage of length or richness, it’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and evolve gracefully."

Provenance: The Pétard Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $425
