  • 2006 Switchback Ridge Petite Sirah Peterson Family Vineyard – USA, California, Napa Valley (3/19/2019)
    WIML94

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Purple color in the glass, almost inky like in the center but clear at the rim. Deep and opaque at the center. Big nose of raspberries, blueberries, soapstone, leather, roasted meat and cassis. Flavors of raspberries, loganberries and plum. Medium acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold. Wow. Might even be a point higher. Excellent representation of Petite Sirah. (94 points)
