Compared to past bottles, this one was unbalanced; leaning towards the alcoholic fruit bomb part of the spectrum.

Popped and poured, dark ruby. Nose is filled with red fruits, black currant, spices and a touch of smoke from oak. Medium to medium-plus body. Much like the nose, the flavors are full of red fruits...think cherries and strawberries along with notes of cedar, spices a touch of the herbaceous and again some toasty oak. Decent acidity for a CA Cab and nicely balanced overall, smooth.
Good Cabernet, probably a great QPR in today's world of inflated CA Cab pricing.

Drank from a magnum.

This has a slight brown brick edge but is full bodied. If not for the color, I would have thought this was a 2011.

Very slight nose with little fruit and more peppers. A full bodied and smooth cab with a nice fruit finish for 10 secs. Then the finished turned very dark bitter chocolate with aniseed. This is a long finish, 30 secs or more. The dark finish did not work for me. This is my personal preference as I am not an aniseed fan.

It would be interesting to see if decanting changes this but I am not sure.

Decanted for 2 hours. This wine gets better and better every time I open one. Too bad this is my last bottle. Balanced, smooth tannins, extremely long finish that leaves you wanting more. Very nice bottle of wine.

This followed a Merus and a Dunn so a bit unfair, but well past its peak, little or no tannins, all fruit, cherries, plums, citrus zest, blueberries

This wine was rested nearly 5 years since my purchase. My patience was paid off big time, at least when comparing my experience to all of the tasting notes posted here. Popped, filtered (a must!) and vinaerated into an ample decanter. After swirling in the decanter for some time we paired this with some medium rare porterhouse steaks. Dense rustic eggplant color; earthy, toasted cedar nose, BIG fruit forward, yet elegant Cali-cab, full bodied dark red-blue fruit with sage and mineral notes: complex and focused. Long, sleek finish. Not the wine you all have described.

Decanted and drank over two days. Red fruited with cranberry and pomegranate notes. Very acidic, especially on the long finish. A really good food wine with fatty foods and smoked cheese. Can't decide if past its peak or just the style of winemaking.

Lovely wine that we opened as a pop and pour but drank over four hours. By hour two to three it had really mellowed to a nice round wine with loads of fruit, light tar and graphite.

i was expecting more from a Schrader, especially a 2007 which was a very highly rated year in California. Very little nose and all of the body was gone.
