2002 Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Cabernet - 96 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 96 RP - 2002 Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Cabernet - 96 pts! The extraordinary, inky/purple-colored 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard offers a marvelous perfume of espresso roast intermixed with explosive quantities of blackberries, cassis, licorice, and Chinese black tea aromas. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, with awesome opulence, a voluptuous, silky texture, and layers of fruit and concentration. The finish goes on for close to a minute. Drink this beauty over the next 12-15 years. RP
