External Reviews for Simi Alexander Valley Merlot
93% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 3% Cabernet SauvignonAromas of spicy clove and cinnamon, with red fruit; cherry, black berry, cassis & plum. Nice weight on palate, cherry, black berry flavors with soft tannins and spice.
Elegant and well-structured, with appealing aromas of currant and roasted herbs and lingering flavors of plum, cedar and leather that finish with firm tannins. Drink now through 2012.
Paacked with plum and black cherry flavors, with exotic spice and vanilla oak elements.
Bright notes of cherry, cranberry and blackberry accented with aromas of clove, cocoa and violets. Upfront red berry fruit leads to a medium bodied wine with elegance and balance.
Nice and smooth, this Merlot is for early drinking. It's as plump as can be in cherries, cocoa, cola and tobacco, with soft acids and even softer tannins.
Well-balanced, with moderately rich, spicy cherry, herb, anise and cedar notes of modest complexity and depth. Drink now through 2004.
Dark red. Plum, mocha, tobacco, earth and bell pepper on the nose. Sweet, spicy flavors of redcurrant and tobacco, firmed by a distinctly green edge. Finishes with dusty tannins. Not bad.
