Addendum 9/19/2012: We shared a bottle of the Schweiger 2009 Chardonnay. It is a good wine, but I prefer the two Cabs. I did try a bottle of the Schweiger 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon and it was just as I remember it at the winery. I rather regret not purchasing a bottle of the Dedication. Both Cabs are highly recommended.

All of four of the wines we tasted at Schweiger were quite interesting and very good. Although I have always associated Spring Mountain wineries with Cabs, I have recently been amazed at how good some of their white wines are, including Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs, Rieslings and Gewürztraminers. In addition to the very nice Chardonnay, Schweiger makes a Sauvignon Blanc which I really wanted to try, but they were sold out. From our discussion with the wine educator, it sounds like a Sauvignon Blanc I’d really like. Schweiger is one of those wineries we plan to return to so perhaps they will have some next time.
