Switchback Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$79.99

Small-production gem of a Cabernet from Robert Foley  Located next to the Hourglass Blueline property and across the street from the famous Three Palms Vineyard, Switchback Ridge Vineyards has been farming their pristine land for decades and Bob Foley has been the man behind the incredible wine since the first vintage in 1999. 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. 95 Points Brix26:  "The Switchback Ridge 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with Bing cherry-like fruit aromatics introduce a harmony of black fruit aromas, thoroughly ripe without a trace of over-ripeness. Initial flood of fruit on the palate gives way to gently gripping tannins that coat the palate, with lingering berry, chocolate and coffee bean suggestions.”

It was ok. Was in parents wine stash. Just didn't deliver the young punch I was hoping for

Silky soft on the palate started with a rich leather and wet earth nose big but elegance - well balanced dark plum finish
