$644.95 price per bottle
Wine Advocate Review
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS has exuberant notes of plum preserves, baked blackberries and warm cassis with notions of cedar, pencil lead, Indian spices and Sichuan pepper plus a touch of rose hip tea. Very firm and structured in the full-bodied mouth, the palate is laden with tightly wound black and blue fruit layers, lifted by an exciting line of freshness and finishing on a lingering perfumed note. Drink 2021-2048.
This young wine brilliantly carries forward the tradition of excellence established by the Schrader CCS marque. With explosive fruit aromatics, lavish texture, and a luxurious mouth-feel, the Schrader CCS shines with effusive flavors of blueberry, blackberry, and cassis, and alluring notes of jasmine and pencil lead. This is a monumental wine with ample structure that will continue to evolve for decades to come.
