Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Schweiger Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon. The complexity and depth of character of the excellent 2001 harvest inspired a new direction in winemaking here; adding a third year of barrel aging to Schweiger’s Cabernet program. Doing this softened and rounded out the full mountain fruit that is “classic Schweiger.” The color is deep and inky. The nose is intensely layered and very fruit forward, led by blackberry, currant, pomegranate, and plum. Very subtle layers of cigar box/cedar and well-integrated oak further complement the aroma. Careful tannin management has blessed this wine with a full and velvety structure. The sweet supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle. The fruit characters from the nose fill the mouth as the tannins build and combine to create a pleasant lingering finish.
