Schrader does it again, with arguably its most successful range. The wines from this series have received three successive 100 points from Parker, leading him to remark: “There doesn’t appear to be a hotter Cabernet Sauvignon producer in the New World than this small boutique winery.”

Wine Advocate #186 Dec 2009

What did Parker say: “There is something about the inky/purple-hued 2007 CCS that blows me away. The most opulent, perfumed, and accessible of these wines, it exhibits an opaque purple colour as well as an extraordinary density and richness in addition to copious crème de cassis, cedar, ink, and spice box characteristics.”
