Beautifully balanced! Almost black in color, this wine hits the right spots with deep black cherry and blackberry. Somehow, switchback managed to hide the heat from the 16.8% abv, and it drinks so smoothly, the alcohol can sneak up on you! its not as thick as I was expecting, in a good way. Great 30 second finish
Three Big Boys (Switchback, Carver Sutro, Mollydooker) (Home): Had a bottle five years or so ago that was "unpleasant". This was the opposite. Wow. This was fantastic. Purple in color. The nose is exuberant with black raspberries, licorice, slight vanilla and plums. Just gorgeous texture. Mouth coating yet supple. Delicious. Lots of fruit but enough acidity to be balance. Plums, black raspberries and slight burnt earthy notes. Long finish. The kind of wine that makes you keep taking sip after sip as its so delicious, but you want to slow down and contemplate it. Probably five to ten years from full maturity but at a great stage right now.
