Holy moly! Chris brought this special treat into Bistro Dre with Looty and Johnny.
It's been a little while since I've sampled a Schrader. How could I possibly forget how fantastic and just plain old delicious their Cabs are - all of them.
Whenever I taste a Schrader the first thing I think of is gorgeous elegant fresh leather. Loads of fruit bombard your senses. Cassis, plums, dark cherries and raspberries. The smoke, earth and leather is killer.
So royal and elegant. This is the absolute pinnacle of Napa Cabernet. I mean, it is completely worth the price tag of now $175. Yes, I've seen it climb over the years from $125 but it's still a steal considering the price of other "blue chip" wines that are rarely this good. The palate is exceptional. Grabs your attention at every sip. Such a long well endowed finish. Big and burly without being over the top. Still great acidity. These wines all tip toe on the brink of perfection. Stunning. Highly recommended. Best wine of 2013 so far! Thanks Chris!

They outperform pretty much every other California Cab that is over $200. The Cayuse style is unlike any other wine being made today. Unusual, fun to drink and absolutely priced fairly for what it brings to the table. Hope this helps. Congrats on making the list!

Heritage Grand Wine Tasting (Ritz-Carlton - Chicago, IL): Layered tropical fruit. Minerals. Not oaky but complex and mouth coating.

Saturday Tasting Group (Knightsbridge Wine Shop (Northbrook, IL)): An absolutely mind boggling and profound wine experience - THANK YOU DAVID!
Gorgeous light roasted nuts, fresh baked cake, lightly burnt caramel, some baking spice. The aromatics are INTENSE - practically soaring out of the glass.
Really light on its feet, the palate shows remarkable concentration, acidity with an almost lemony citrus play on the back end.
Some slightly charred orange marmalade coming through as well. A super long finish with only moderate viscosity this wine could go for another fifty years to be honest.
Remarkable - high pitch (agree Phil) and really vibrant aromatics and mouth feel. One of the most memorable single bottles I've ever had the opportunity to sample.
We didn't want to finish the small taste we each were poured.A monumental wine tasting moment for all involved. Totally kick-ass.
