Wine Profile
Full-bodied, rockingly concentrated and powerful, yet still elegant and seamless. This Cabernet has a healthy dose stylistic structure and verve!
 
Palate Impressions
Deeply concentrated and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon with great depth, structure and beautiful balance. Layers of Bing cherry, blackberry and cassis are intermingled with subtle hints of black licorice, espresso and sandalwood. The flavors expand on your palate and gain intensity before they give way to a long, endless finish. A perfect combination of fruit intensity, bright acidity and silky tannin structure.

Myriad Context
Located on the “upper east side’, the Peterson Family Vineyard aka Switchback Ridge is nestled up against the palisade mountains of Calistoga. 100+ acres in total, with 21 acres under vine, this Calistoga ranch is some of the most sought-after Cabernet in the Napa Valley.  Named for the winding trails in the hills above the vineyard that John Peterson explored as a child, the terroir, temperatures, soil composite and location are prime time Napa Valley.  A show-stopping Cabernet in the hands of Mike Smith!
