Switchback Ridge Peterson Family Vineyard Petite Sirah 2012

A massive wine with incredible concentration and depth of flavor. Wild berry fruits are intermixed with blueberry liqueur and a hint of charred meat and espresso. Rich and opulent on the palate, supported by dense tannin structure and bright, natural acidity.

Wine AdvocateThe fabulous, opaque purple-colored 2012 Petite Sirah Peterson Family Vineyard boasts beautiful blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit notes intertwined with notions of camphor, spring flowers, spice and oak. Full-bodied, opulent, fleshy and super-concentrated, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish, this sensational red can be drunk now, because of its approachability, and over the next 20-25 years.

Wine SpectatorA core of deep, dark flavors of plum, blackberry and cassis is at the core of this wine. Sarsaparilla, black tea, roasted nut and spice accents gain momentum on the finish. Firm tannins. Drink now through 2025. 623 cases made.
