I know what you are thinking, another wimpy merlot, soft and silky – WRONG!! The 2015 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 2015 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.”
