The Switchback Ridge 2012 Merlot is a rich and powerful wine from Calistoga, Napa Valley. As Robert Parker puts it, “One of Napa Valley’s finest Merlots has long been Switchback Ridge’s offering from the Peterson Family Vineyard. No one will be disappointed with the sumptuous 2012.” Juicy, ripe and lush on the palate with flavors of dark cherries, blackberry compote and exotic spice, this wine is framed by its ample tannin structure and a long, elegant finish with a hint of chocolate and vanilla bean on the end.
