Simi Cabernet Reserva

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red with purple tones and up front aromas of berry with a hint of sweet oak. Cherries, berries and cassis flavors touch the palate. A lingering finish of elegant tannins and black spice completes this silky wine. Varietal Composition is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 2% Syrah, 2% Petite Syrah, 1% Malbec Alexander Valley possesses the greatest diversity of soil types in any wine-growing region of California. It has a long history of dramatic geologic activity-from an ancient mudflow that changed the course of the Russian River, to earthquake upheavals that redistributed whole sections of land. The incredible diversity of soil types and microclimates produces wines with the velvety textures and bright, luscious flavors that are characteristic of Alexander Valley. Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the best of Alexander Valley's bright fruit characters and elegance that made this world-class growing region famous.

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

Dark red with a ruby cast. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, and plum laced with cedar, spice and rose petals. Lush black cherry and black berry notes are highlighted with vanilla and a dusting of cocoa and herbs.

The Simi Cabernet is clean, quiet and leaning very slightly to the greener end of the varietal spectrum; firm; middleweight; to be drunk in the relatively near term.
