  • Schweiger Sauvignon Blanc 2021 - This Sauvignon Blanc has beautiful aromas of citrus, lime, and passionfruit. Harvested from the cool-climate influences of Sonoma, it opens on the palate and presents layered complexity, zest, and a finish of layered grapefruit and minerality.
  • Schweiger Chardonnay 2021 - On the nose, you are greeted with aromas of white peach, nectarine, lemon zest, and lychee fruit. The silky entry has layered fruit tones with added notes of orange and Asian pear with undertones of toasted oak and vanilla spices.
  • Schweiger Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 - The color alone is striking—an inky shade of garnet that verges on black velvet. The entry is plush but then meanders into an intensely layered mid-palate of blackberry, boysenberry, and pomegranate. Mingling with the fruit components are gentle notes of oak, tobacco, and wild bramble. The finish lingers on and on with playful acidity and tannin flashing the berry expressions for as long as 45 seconds.
  • Schweiger Dedication 2017 - This vintage of Schweiger's Bordeaux blend is layered with bright cherry, blackberry, oak, and cardamom. 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.
  • Schweiger Iteration VX Port NV - This release is a lovely, silky, delicate and perfectly melded balance of Cabernet Sauvignon and brandy, with flavors of cherries, plums, strawberries, and blackberries enveloped in toasty marshmallow with a dusting of dried fruit and lavender. This is dessert on its own!

We will also have limited by-the-glass options and bottles available to order at special retail rates. We look forward to seeing you.. CHEERS!
