2009 Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Napa Valley Merlot 750ml

Quick Overview

Wine Spectator Top 100: 2012 #29! A Wine Stop Favorite!!! This wine is brought to you by the talents of Robert Foley (Paloma, Pride Mountain, Hourglass, etc.)! Delicious raspberry and blackberry fruit. Sweet, rich mid-palate, with ripe fruit and espresso, leads to even, mouth-coating tannin. Densely packed and good grip in the finish. Very Cabernet-like.

2009 Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Napa Valley Merlot 750ml

Switchback Ridge Wines are sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga. 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.

Winemaker Bob Foley began his winemaking career in 1977, working at a number of highly regarded Napa Valley wineries including Pride Mountain Vineyards, where he spent 15 years as founding winemaker. Today he continues to focus on his own Robert Foley Wines, as well as Switchback Ridge and Hourglass, and is having a blast traveling around the country with the Robert Foley Band!

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 94

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Rich, layered and well-structured, with floral red currant aromas and complex flavors of black cherry, anise and toasty spice that lead to big but ripe tannins. Drink now through 2018.
