Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Schweiger opens with a black cherry, milk chocolate, and cigar box bouquet with hints of chai tea and plum. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, super smooth and polished. The flavor profile is a tasty mild blackberry and graphite blend with notes of black olive and cedar. We also detected hints of green tea, boysenberry, and dark chocolate. The finish is dry, and its well-managed refined moderate tannins build-up and drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would suggest pairing this Cab blend with prime bone-in New York strip steak or a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This vintage of our Bordeaux blend is layered with bright cherry, blackberry, oak, and cardamon. Every varietal carries the tune in this symphony. Structure comes from the Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Merlot brings colorful blue fruits of boysenberry and pomegranate. Cabernet Franc showcases its versatile dried herbs and soft tannins while Malbec presents zingy fruitiness and thick sticky tannins. The entry explodes with waves of fruit, including bright cherry, ripe raspberries, blackberries, and notes of oak and cassis. The midpalate finishes with mouthwatering acidity balanced by fruit and polished tannins. Pair our 2017 Dedication Bordeaux blend while beef braises slowly in the oven. Serve the beef with roasted eggplant and mushrooms with a hint of thyme over a bed of creamy polenta.
