2016 Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Napa Valley Merlot 750ml
Winery Notes- Enticing red fruit bowl aromas of raspberry, red cherry and cassis are graced with just a hint of savory spice. These flavors flood the palate with a rich mouthful of deliciousness that brings on espresso-like nuances. The structure and balance resolve in a mouth-coating finish that seems to go on forever.
JEB DUNNUCK REVIEW: I also loved the 2016 Merlot Peterson Family Vineyard. This puppy also comes from a site in the northern part of the Valley. It has a true "wow" nose and offers loads of black cherries, blueberries, chocolate, bay leaf, and assorted tobacco and herbal notes. It has its foot firmly on the ripeness pedal, is full-bodied, deep, and has a stacked mid-palate. It's a pleasure-bent, seriously good Merlot to drink over the coming decade.
