This 2014 Dedication™ marks the 14th release of our Bordelais 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 winemaker’s job. On the nose, our 2014 Dedication™ offers rich dark fruit with faint seasonings of toasted flax seed, cumin, star anise, and minerals. This vintage is a higher than usual percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, which gives it an added weight and complexity, yet its layers remain silky in texture with a delicate rose petal finish. 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.
