Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Landslide 2008
"A single-vineyard designate wine, our Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits toasty aromas of cherry, cranberry and plum. At once powerful and elegant, it has ripe black cherry fruit flavors integrated with big, ripe tannins that culminates in a supple, long finish that hints of blackberry and spice." - Simi Winery

aromas of chocolate laced with cinnamon, blackberry, plum, black cherry and exotic wood spice. On the palate, a velvety entry is followed by concentrated black cherry and red plum fruit accented with toffee. It finishes with a hint of roasted coffee. Supp
This vintage of Landslide is deeper, darker, and more sultry in nature than usual, with great concentration of fruit both blue and black in nature. Opaque deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, this wine entices with warm and inviting aromas of sweet black cherry, cassis, plum, blackberry, raspberry, dark roasted coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and smoky mineral notes. On the palate, dark berries and plums meet up with roasted coffee accents. The entry is big, full, and rich, followed by a focused middle and a youthful finish with a slight grip and dark roasted offering. This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with beef Stroganoff, chickenfried steak with mushroom gravy, grilled Greek rack of lamb, and wild mushroom lasagna. - WineryAppellation: Alexander ValleyVarietal Composition:84% Cabernet Sauvignon7% Cabernet Franc5% Merlot2% Petit Verdot1.5% Malbec.5% TannatFermentation: 100% stainless steel; average of 35 days on the skinsAging: 100% oak-aged for 26 months in French oak barrels,...
