The Switchback Ridge 2013 Napa Valley Petite Sirah was produced from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga, Napa Valley. Here, the family farms two blocks of Petite Sirah - one with 60+ year old vines and another with 12 year old vines. This wine is a blend of the two blocks, and we must say, it is a beautifully balanced Petite Sirah with big, bold flavors, a plush, velvety texture, and a ton of personality. It opens with enticing aromas of blackberry pie that lead to a viscous and mouth-coating palate with perfectly integrated natural acidity and abundant chewy tannins. Flavors of dark chocolate, blueberry pie, Earl Grey tea, toasted walnut bread, and hints of caraway and spicy cigar box all come together in the incredible long-lasting finish.
