    March 14, 2019 - We drank two Cabs with our best wine friends Michael and Kohar: a 2012 Schrader LPV that was decanted for about 60 minutes and a 2005 Araujo Eisele that was opened and poured. An excellent compare and contrast between the bright Schrader and the softer, more plush Araujo. The Schrader is a great wine, but the Araujo was the consensus favorite. At the evening I felt freed to drink more older cabs and reminded to keep my hands off the rest. We’ll see how long that second part lasts.

    March 2, 2019 - Very aromatic red fruits, graphite, touch of cinnamon and cassis. Voluptuous on the palate, seamless entry, agree with jsmorris707 note that its beginning to lose its baby fat. This wine is entering a phase I like to target, in between the youthful vibrancy and just entering into development of the secondary characteristics. Top notch Napa Cabernet. Went down so easily. Just a beautiful wine.

    February 9, 2019 - Double decanted for 90 min, deep ruby, dark fruit with a touch of vanilla & cinnamon, med/firm tannins, long finish; delicious & starting to lose its baby fat, long life ahead

    Kept improving throughout the evening

    December 21, 2018 - Agree with Parker unlike any other Schrader, more red-fruited and bitter, notes of citrus. hmm...

    November 23, 2018 - Great nose. Sweet fruit flavors of plum, cassis, and rasberry. Silky tannin and firm acidity create a velvety midpalate and finish. Great wine
