Story

Switzer Family Vineyards was established February 10, 2010, out of a mutual family adoration for fine wine. Our Vintage 2007 was produced a year later.

Coach Switzer developed his wine palate in the 1990s when coaching for wine connoisseur and Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. “Jerry wouldn’t order anything but the best,” Switzer said.

“It didn’t take long to develop a better palate for the fine wine.”

This vintage is a lush Cabernet Sauvignon with intense aromas of black raspberry, hazelnut and cinnamon bark. In the mouth, the flavors are rich and fruit focused. Ripe currant and blackberry integrate nicely with the toasted oak flavors. The wine has a silky texture that finishes with a long persistent aftertaste.
