2017 Switchback Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard
2017 Switchback Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard Intense dark fruit aromas of black cherry and black currant indicate the ripeness and purity of this beautiful Cabernet. The structural framework is sturdy, while tannin grips very gently, carrying the fruit flavors with a trace of vanilla into a long, graceful finish.
A deeply concentrated and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon with great depth, structure and beautiful balance. Layers of Bing cherry, blackberry and cassis are intermingled with subtle hints of black licorice, espresso and sandalwood. The flavors expand on your palate and gain intensity before they give way to a long, endless finish. A perfect combination of fruit intensity, bright acidity and silky tannin structure for early enjoyment and long term cellaring. Winemaker
I could not even get some for myself, very little to be had on this no-brainer buy! The 2017 Switchback Cabernet Peterson Vineyard is a jaw dropping, glorious Cabernet, and will be gone in a flash at this price. Switchback Ridge produces handcrafted estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Sirah sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga, Napa Valley. The Peterson family has owned this vineyard all the way back to 1914 and Switchback started in 1999. Winemaking legend and family friend Bob Foley, Pride and Hourgass, helped get the winery to its pinnacle status. Now Cabernet Super Star Thomas Rivers Brown is winemaker. Thomas has mode more 100pts Napa Cabs in the last ten years than any other winemaker. He makes wines at some of the finest cult producers, the most famous being Schrader. Switchback’s Cabs have got huge press as high as 98pts by Parker. Since 2012 they stopped getting their wines rated as they sell out and don’t need to. This wine rivals the best and with a 38% Savings, if you like the best, this is a definite buy. This wine is everything that is great about Napa Cab, “full-bodied, majestically concentrated wine boasting an expansive, broad texture, stunning purity, a 50-second finish, enormous body, and no sense of overbearing, over-ripeness or heaviness.” Napa Cab Lovers, stock up! Again very limited at this incredible price. Very rare a wine of such pedigree can be had with such big savings.
