Switchback Ridge 2015 Napa Valley Merlot

$ 54.99

This is what Merlot should be! Ripe aromas and flavors of red cherry and cassis coat the palate with a rich, round middle. A framework of soft tannin delivers a beautiful finish with hints of mocha. -  Bob Foley, Winemaker

The nose is a spicy graphite and licorice, brown spice and red plum. The palate entry is a supple black cherry with a rich core of garrigue, violet and soft notes of integrated brown spices. Beautiful texture throughout. Drink 2018-2027. -  Purely Domestic Wine Report | Volume 7.1, December 2018 - 94 points
