Switchback Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2001

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The other-worldly 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard is ... to die for! Given its quality, the price is surprisingly realistic, considering how many California North Coast mediocrities fetch three digit prices. This opaque purple-colore... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Switchback Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard 750ml

The property has been in the Peterson family since 1914 and encompasses nearly 100 acres located at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon. For over 75 years the property was primarily maintained as a farm and plum orchard, with vines intermingled amongst the trees. In 1990, the orchards were replanted to vineyard, where there are currently 18 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Sirah vines, in addition to a three acre 50+ year old Petite Sirah block that John Peterson helped plant as a child.

The other-worldly 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard ishellip; to die for! Given its quality, the price is surprisingly realistic, considering how many California North Coast mediocrities fetch three digit prices. This opaque purple-colored Cabernet exhibits wonderfully sweet aromas of melted licorice intermixed with cedar wood, black currant liqueur, chocolate, and spice box. This full-throttle, unctuously-textured, dense, broad, pure, impeccably balanced, expansive 2001 is mouth-coating in its richness and intensity. It can be drunk with great pleasure, or cellared for 15ndash;20 years. Wow!

A fabulous young wine. Ultrarich and harmonious, with ripe, supple tannins wrapped around a delicious core of currant, blackberry, vanilla, espresso bean and mocha, gliding to a long, sensual finish with lots of rich, intricate flavors. Best from 2005 through 2012.
