    October 25, 2019 - Tasted very flat. Not turned or overaged, just flat and boring. A stark contrast from young Schweiger wines. Maybe they just weren't meant to age. Really disappointed.

    May 13, 2019 - Opaque black with a half inch pour. Very rich mouth entry with tasty blackberry, black currant, and black cherry, buoyed up by a perfect undertow of acid and tannin. Dense, powerful, mouth filling, and big, with a lovely sheen of smoothness, elegance, and integration from being aged for 14 years.

    December 4, 2018 - For a high altitude Cabernet Sauvignon that on release is dominated by powerful tannin that is backward, tight, grippy, and astringent, this 13 year old wine is a stunning Olympic gold metal gymnastic flip. Round, soft, integrated, seamless, rich, fruit forward, and luscious, while remaining refreshingly acidic and amply tannic. Overall, magnificently well matured, comparable to great left bank Bordeaux wines made with higher proportions of Cabernet Sauvignon.
