Merlot of the Month

 

I know what you are thinking, another wimpy wine, soft and silky – WRONG!!  The 2014 Switchback Ridge (produced by Robert Foley), is a big, bold red blend of Merlot and Cabernet. Switchback Ridge wines are sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga. The rich, rocky soils of this beautiful vineyard property consistently produce low yields of intensely flavored fruit, resulting in extremely concentrated, fruit driven wines that are the hallmark of Switchback Ridge

The 2014 Switchback Ridge Merlot is a rich, mutli-layered and well-structured wine.  On the nose you’ll encounter floral red currant, black cherry and anise aromas.  On the palate this wine is bold and complex with luscious flavors of blackstone fruits, chocolate, anise and a hint of spice that lead to big but silky tannin finish. Drink now through 2025

Winemaker Notes: “A rich and powerful Merlot with dark cherries, blackberry compote and exotic spice. Juicy, ripe and lush on the palate, framed by ample tannin structure and a long, elegant finish with a hint of chocolate and vanilla bean on the end.”

A moment for Las Vegas

 Remember Las Vegas

Words cannot begin to express the sadness that we feel when hearing the news of the horrific and senseless murders that took place in Las Vegas on Sunday night. Dozens of lives cut short and millions forever impacted.

Let us take this moment to not only remember the lives that were lost, but to embrace the lives that remain. In the aftermath of this tragedy, let us work together to build a new community of caring and solidarity in the hopes that in doing so we may be able lessen the chances of similar calamities arising in the future.

Together as one,
Frank
