Inviting aromas of crushed blackberry and plum compote are complemented by a touch of spring flowers.
With great concentration and beautiful balance, the Schrader RBS shows wonderful energy and freshness on the palate. Flavors of graphite and blue and black fruits dance along the palate with the integration of wood, tannin, and acidity being seamless.
The 2016 vintage was marked early in the growing season by rains that helped to recharge the suffering aquifers with much needed rain that helped to alleviate the drought. As the growing season began flowering presented itself with a small crop that was helped through the season by near perfect summer weather. These ideal conditions continued through harvest where we were able to pick at optimal concentration. The resulting wines from this vintage have intense concentration with a great natural balance that likens itself to the consistent growing season.
