Experience Schrader Old Sparky: Pinnacle of Napa Cab


Wine bottles in front of wooden cases


It is the season of giving and we have just lowered all of our prices on our rare Old Sparky from Schrader! This wine consistently receives 98-100 points and this is what we call a "Full-throttle Napa Cab"
Only produced in Magnums and sourced from two separate blocks from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, Old Sparky is something everyone should have in their cellar and experience in their lifetime. At GRW, one of the most memorable wines that we’ve ever tasted was the 2007 Old Sparky that gave everyone in the room goosebumps. This wine is THAT good. The inaugural vintage was 2002 and since then, the wine has received (9) 100 Point Ratings from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate!
These magnums are so hard to come by nowadays because everyone holds on to them for personal consumption and frankly, we don't blame them. However, we were able to secure just a few Old Sparky’s that are ready to go to their new homes. This is truly the “Crème de la crème” of Schrader.
What the Critics Say:
"This impressive young wine reminds me of a first growth Pauillac" - Robert Parker 
“It’s a monumental bottle of wine that made me want to downgrade every other wine I tasted for this report” – Jeb Dunnuck
“Extremely fine-grained. Greatest Schrader ever made” – James Suckling
