95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "
Readers looking to get a taste of the impeccable quality and style from Schrader at a more affordable price point would do well to check out the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Diamond. Coming all from Oakville, it has a classic Cabernet nose of black and blue fruits, green tobacco, cedar pencil, damp earth, and chocolate. It's not over the top and has beautiful varietal character as well as medium to full body, ripe yet present tannins, good overall freshness, and a great finish. This is beautifully done and well worth a case purchase. I'd lean toward drinking bottles over the coming 10-12 years, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve longer. It's a candidate for the best Napa Cabernet under $100."

93 Points James Suckling:
"An elegant, fruit-driven cabernet sauvignon with notes of red fruit and spices. Fresh herbs, such as thyme. It’s full-bodied and well balanced. The texture is pleasant and smooth with elegant tannins. The finish is long and flavorful."

Back by popular demand following an unfathomable three year pause, Fred Schrader’s Double Diamond Cabernet is now available. Double Diamond, from the producers of Schrader, opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast and oak spice. The notes of herbs, pine cone and dried earth. In the mouth, the palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big, rich flavor. 

In 2000, Fred Schrader launched Double Diamond, just two years after he founded Schrader Cellars in 1998, as part of his ongoing mission to make the most exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon that Napa Valley could offer. These wines, as you know, are crafted by renowned winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, who has remarkably led Schrader Cellars to an unprecedented record of twenty four 100-pt. scores during their 18-year partnership.
