On the nose, the 2012 Dedication™ offers rich blackberry, currant, plum and loads of jammy cherry with faint seasonings of dark chocolate, truffle oil, oak, coriandor, and minerals.  A velvety core of lush red fruit emerges from the ripeness of our small-berried hillside fruit.  This generously proportioned wine expands as it moves through the palate with a seemingly endless finish. Ultimately, what you’ll find is the classic Schweiger marriage of power and finesse.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES: Our 2012 Dedication™ marks the tenth release of our bordelaise project. This wine is a complex and fruity blend incorporating the four most common varietals used in this style of wine; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.  Blending such a wine is one of the most fun and rewarding parts of a winemakers job.  On the nose, the 2012 Dedication™ offers rich blackberry, currant, plum and loads of jammy cherry with faint seasonings of dark chocolate, truffle oil, oak, coriandor, and minerals.  A velvety core of lush red fruit emerges from the ripeness of our small-berried hillside fruit.  This generously proportioned wine expands as it moves through the palate with a seemingly endless finish. Ultimately, what you’ll find is the classic Schweiger marriage of power and finesse. It’s hard for me  to figure out what is more fun, making this wine…or drinking it!
