Schweiger Vineyards 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
This remarkable Estate grown and bottled Cabernet Sauvignon was made from grapes grown in deep volcanic soil from 16-24 year old vines. Aged for 32 months in a blend of new French oak, 2-3 year old French oak and a small percentage of 2-4 year old American oak, this wine has the potential to age gracefully for 10+ years. A big, bold powerful wine exhibiting aromas and flavors of blackberries, black currant, plum, dark chocolate, espresso and toasty oak meet undertones of hearty herbs and damp earth. On the palate this wine shows big tannins that will soften with decanting or aging into a velvety mouthfeel with a long, supple finish. This is an excellent gift for the wine connoisseur in your life!
96% Cabernet Sauvignon
