The 2016 vintage of Double Diamond opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast, and oak spice with notes of herbs, pine cone, and dried earth. In the mouth, the palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big, rich flavor. The tannin structure makes this a great wine to enjoy upon release, but it will also mellow nicely for the next two to six years.

In 2001, Fred Schrader created Double Diamond as part of his continuing quest to make the best Cabernet Sauvignon that Napa Valley can offer. With the help of acclaimed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, this unique expression of the region carries on the tradition of earning critical acclaim and drawing passionate fans that Fred began in 1998 with Schrader Cellars. Double Diamond is not produced in every vintage.

Thomas Rivers Brown followed his interest in winemaking to Napa Valley and was working at a wine shop when he first met Fred Schrader. After a few glasses of wine and a brief but life-changing conversation, Fred knew Thomas was the perfect choice to be his new winemaker, even though Thomas had never made a single barrel of Cabernet Sauvignon. Nineteen years later, Thomas’s dedication to excellence has helped lead Schrader Cellars to an unprecedented record of twenty-seven 100-point scores from the world’s most respected critics.
Carol Schrader created her first label for Schrader Cellars in 2003. Her unwavering commitment to quality was an ideal match for Fred and Thomas, and soon she became an integral part of the brand. Additionally, her designs have graced Double Diamond bottles since the beginning, evolving over the years. Her striking design for the 2016 Double Diamond Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon combines the heritage of the essential wine mark with a dynamic, modern aesthetic and a bold vision for the future.
