2001 Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Cabernet - 98 Pts!
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 at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon, which is located at the northeastern end of the Napa Valley. The rich, rocky soils of this beautiful vineyard site consistently produce low yields of intensely flavored fruit, resulting in extremely concentrated, fruit-driven wines that are the hallmark of Switchback Ridge.

Winemaker Bob Foley is the talent behind Switchback Ridge. He has been making wine in the Napa Valley for over 40 years and has been crafting the Switchback Ridge wines since the first vintage in 1999.

Rating 98 RP - The other-worldly 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard is ... to die for! Given its quality the price is surprisingly realistic considering how many California North Coast mediocrities fetch three digit prices. This opaque purple-colored Cabernet exhibits wonderfully sweet aromas of melted licorice intermixed with cedar wood black currant liqueur chocolate and spice box. This full-throttle unctuously-textured dense broad pure impeccably balanced expansive 2001 is mouth-coating in its richness and intensity. It can be drunk with great pleasure or cellared for 15-20 years. Wow! RP
