    Critical Acclaim:

    A spectacular Petite Sirah from Switchback Ridge, this 2002 boasts an impenetrable blue/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of black fruits, white chocolate, pepper, minerals, and a hint of espresso. Opulent, with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, and wood, this remarkably civilized Petite Sirah is crammed with rich fruit as well as burgeoning complexity. This beauty can be enjoyed for its extravagant fruit, but promises to evolve for 15 or more years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Dark and immense, with a lively medley of black cherry, wild berry and boysenberry flavors that are rich and vivid, offering a purity of fruit along with depth and concentration, ending with a complex and well-integrated aftertaste.

    Wine Spectator

    Saturated ruby-blue. Distinctly high-toned nose (this has VA of 0.8, according to winemaker Bob Foley) like a fruit liqueur: blackberry, blueberry and licorice. Then supersweet, fat and thick, with huge, creamy flavors of candied red fruits, blueberry and game. Distinctly liqueur-like yet somehow not heavy, despite alcohol in the low 15s. Finishes with big but sweet tannins that avoid the dryness and chalkiness shown by so much petite sirah. Very impressive wine, and best suited for drinking for its youthful fruit.
