The immense 2019 Schrader LPV offers a heady wallop of wild blueberries, blackberries, and cassis fruit character with captivating notes of mesquite, espresso, rich chocolate, black tea, tobacco, graphite, and forest floor. Complex and complete, the wine is full-bodied with generous, plush fruit flavors that continue to expand on the palate and carry on at full force to the indulgently long, expressive finish. Grown on the gentle slopes of West St. Helena, the vines endure the added stress of the rocky soils to produce wines of exceptional concentration and formidable structure.
A cool vintage overall, the picking windows for 2019 were very long, which gave the luxury of harvesting each different vineyard block at the perfect level of ripeness. The moment pressed the grapes, They knew this wine was heading toward greatness. It’s exhibiting remarkable freshness that perfectly balances its flavor concentration and compares to the exceptional 2001/2002 vintages for tannins and acidity. Wonderfully enjoyable at release but will also be an ideal addition to your cellar for many years to come.
