2011 Switchback Ridge "Peterson Family Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Sirah

SKU #1156293 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers a powerful core of blackberry and wild blueberry flavors, with plush, velvety tannins and black licorice, dark chocolate, Earl Grey tea, nutmeg, fresh rosemary and sage details. The finish goes on and on. Drink now through 2025. (MW) Inner quote mark (11/2014)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Aromas of black fruits, licorice, mocha and nutty oak. Plush, dense and sweet, showing noteworthy thickness but also good lift to the slightly chunky flavors of dark berries, game and chocolate. Still a bit youthfully clenched, finishing with big, broad, serious tannins, surprising verve and late notes of blackberry, licorice, pepper and game. Managing partner Kelly Peterson calls this wine 'our most approachable petite sirah ever, as the cool growing season benefited this fruit,' but added that the wine will still reward ten years of aging. At the very least, give this a good long time in a decanter if you plan to open a bottle anytime soon. 90+ points. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

K&L Notes

From the winery: "Switchback Ridge wines are sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga. The rich, rocky soils of this beautiful vineyard property consistently produce low yields of intensely flavored fruit, resulting in extremely concentrated, fruit driven wines that are the hallmark of Switchback Ridge. Not only are we blessed with an incredible vineyard site, we are extremely fortunate to be working with one of the most talented winemakers in the industry. Bob Foley has been making our wines since our first vintage in 1999."
