A lot of what we do at Simi is based on tradition, enhanced with cutting-edge innovation. Our philosophy has always been to maintain the quality and style that we're recognized for, while at the same time improve our methods for growing grapes and crafting wines to reflect the experience and knowledge we are accumulating and have been throughout the winery's 125-year history. Long ago we also realized the importance of Alexander Valley and knew that it would be a leading appellation for growing Bordeaux varietals. Today we showcase the region with our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as our vineyard-designated Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1989 we purchased our Russian River Valley Goldfields Vineyard and planted it to hand-selected original cuttings from some of the best and oldest vineyards in California. This innovative technique gives us the amazing diversity of flavors that has made Simi's Russian River Reserve Chardonnay famous. Simi's unique vineyards are the genesis of our distinct wines. Our warm Alexander Valley Estate Vineyards are planted primarily to red Bordeaux varietals and are the source of Simi's Cabernet Sauvignon. These vineyards encompass nearly 600 acres and possess some of the most diverse soils of any wine-growing region, resulting from eons of geologic activity including a catastrophic landslide which changed the course of the Russian River. Complementing the Alexander Valley Vineyards, Simi's 120-acre Goldfields Vineyard in the Russian River Valley is the backbone of the Simi Chardonnay. Planted with a wide array of clones and field selections, Goldfields Vineyard is one of the most diverse vineyards in the Russian River Valley and all of California. With every taste of Simi wines you'll discover our devotion to tradition that is enhanced by our pursuit of the best vineyards, the best grape-growing methods, and the best winemaking techniques. Tasting Room Open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm for tasting and sales. Read less

Wonderfully balanced wine, smooth and fruity with firm tannins and a nice, lingering finish. Great cabernet and my favorite in this price range!

Had this at dinner at PF Chang's last weekend. Probably the best wine they had in house. Not too big or bold, but had a very nice finish and smooth tannins. Would buy again with no hesitation.

This bottling has been a star for Simi since its inception, and the '05 is among their best ever. It shows Alexander Valley's softness and slight herbaceousness, along with decadently rich red currant, mocha and oak flavors. Classic and elegant now,... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Landslide Vineyard 750ml
