    Description

    Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Old Sparky
    Magnum (1)
    "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky is a fabulous effort. Dense purple-hued with sweet, smoky, blackberry, cassis, roasted meats, toast, and licorice, it possesses tremendous texture, a sumptuous mid-palate, and a stunning finish." (96pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #174, Dec 2007)

    "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky (only available in magnums) is the highest in alcohol (14.8%) and, again, was aged in 100% new Darnajou barrels. This is just magnificent and at age ten, tasting like it was four to five years of age. Of course, tasting from magnum contributed somewhat to that, but it’s a great, great example of the Schrader’s favorite cuvée, hence the name. It is predominantly made from Clone 6, with small amounts of Clones 4 and 337. Like all these wines, it has an inky purple color, with notes of licorice, forest floor, graphite, cedar wood and creme de cassis and new saddle leather. Voluptuously textured, expansive, savory and full-bodied, with super-sweet tannins and a finish that goes on for close to a minute, this is a prodigious wine and one of the superstars of the vintage. Look for it to drink well for another 30+ years." (100 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #219, June 2015)
