Wine Spectator Reviews Vintage 2019

Wine Spectator reviewer James Moleworth calls Double Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon a "value play".

"Schrader's Double Diamond bottling is made predominantly from To Kalon fruit, but checks in at just $80, well below the standard entry point of $100 for Napa Cabernet...

Packs in generous steeped plum, boysenberry and mulberry flavors backed by a broad swath of roasted alder and bittersweet cocoa. Brimming with dense fruit, and is squarely in the not-shy style. The long finish has a serious loamy tug, too. Best from 2023 through 2035."

"In addition to the single vineyard releases, this estate also releases a more value-priced Cabernet. The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Diamond (which is still 70% To kalon) offers a forward, medium to full-bodied, incredibly sexy style as well as classy notes of cassis, tobacco, incense, orange blossom, and flowers. Readers looking for a touch of that Schrader magic at a slightly more affordable price are going to love this beauty. It's already drinking nicely, and I see no need to delay gratification."
