Switchback Ridge Merlot Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Switchback Ridge wines are sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard located directly across from the prestigious Three Palms Vineyard at the northeastern end of the Napa Valley. The rich, rocky soils of this beautiful vineyard property consistently produce low yields of intensely flavored fruit, resulting in extremely concentrated wines with explosive flavor on the palate. Not only are we blessed with a superior vineyard site, we also have one of the best winemakers on the planet working with our fruit: Bob Foley is the man!

Sleekly structured yet builds in intensity. Offers aromas of currant and mocha and rich, layered flavors of black cherry, exotic spice and toasty oak. Drink now through 2014. 948 cases made. -TF Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2006 Switchback Ridge Merlot Peterson Family Vineyard 750ml
