Switchback Ridge Petite Sirah Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"Robert Parker 96, Wine Spectator 93 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! Alcohol: 14.5% Length & Type of Aging: 18 months; Neutral Oak Barrels Bottling Date: June 24, 2004 Number of Cases Produced: 298 "
