2011 Schrader Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard

PnP & drank over about 2 hours. Made the list & wanted to try one. Is it way way to early to drink this hell yes, does that bother me hell no! This is what is great about wine you can open a bottle like this at 10am during the holidays with a few great friends & have a wonderful time. That makes it worth every penny!
Now the wine. The nose is just incredible no words! We all went to our galsses over & over just to smell it before we ever to a sip. Bright dark blue & black fruits mixed with an what I call a barrel spice mixed with some vanilla but not strong at all just a very tiny hint on the finish. So pleasant on the palate just makes you want to swirl it around over & over before you let it glide down the back of your tongue. A joy to drink & something that is worth the wait & price of admission!

Enjoyed this over 2 days but will just write a combined note from memory. Very re fruited with a nice weight to it. There was also some spice & lavander that came through on day 2. I can't wait to try one of these with a few years on it. I also like the change up this gives you vs a lot of he heavy wines I drink. This gives you the same power of the flavors but just dances on the palate.

Opened this up on Christmas day to have with King Crab Legs. Great pairing BTW.
had some tropical fruits with kind of a citrus kicker in the back ground. Full bodied but very light on it's feet. I do not feel it has the power that the 2010 had but still equally as enjoyable.

Slow ox for about 5 hours then a 1-2 hour decant. Joyful flavors of perfectly ripe blueberries, spice & some earthy dust. Great balance and mouthfeel with just some tannnins there to let you know this is just a baby. It will get a lot better but it was a true joy to drink now.94++

From Magnum. Took it out to eat as something for everyone to enjoy at a restaurant gathering. PnP. Classic Paul Hobbs just a wonderful blend of dark fruits, a touch of vanilla & mind blowing texture. He truly has a way with his wines when it comes to the texture & mouthfeel.

2 Hour decant from Magnum. Very small hint of bricking on the edges, red fruits, caramel, licorice and hint of spice once on the palate. This has turned me to a CdP fan for sure now. Loved this wine from the first sniff to the final drop that crossed my tongue. paired this with Wagyu bone in ribeyes.......wonderful!

PnP. We wanted a red wine the other night and my wife made it clear she wanted a Myriad in which I gladly poured as they are my favorites also. Nice black & blue fruit jump out of the glass. Also got a touch of some tobacco. The wine is very consistent with the other bottles I have opened. Nice firm & sweet tannins are still there.

Had these beside a bottle of the 2010. Compared to the 2010 this was much more lean & pepper while still showing a nice bit of fruit. Always fun to compare vintages.

PnP. Not going to rate this bottle as it seemed a little off with very muted flavors compared to the other bottle which we loved. Still a good wine just seemed off. NR
