94 Points - Wine Enthusiast "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, it should develop bottle complexities for the next six years. This is a good price, especially compared to what’s going on in Napa."

The Landslide Vineyard is comprised of numerous soil types and microclimates created by an ancient volcanic landslide from nearby Mount St Helena These soil variations, combined with diverse topography, result in varied bud break, flowering, veraison and harvest times in the vineyard blocks Along with the complexity created by the different soil types and topography, Simi has planted an assortment of varieties and clones Nine different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec give winemaker Steve Reeder and his team the tools needed to create spectacular blends of the "big five" Bordeaux varietals

This vintage, our Landslide Vineyard produced a wine that is intensely seductive with an alluring balance of dark fruit to bright fruit. Opaque deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, this wine begins the seduction with sweet black cherry, cassis, plum, and blackberry fruit aromas along with dark roasted coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and smoky mineral notes. Subtle wafts of violets, hints of mint and celery seed complete the aromatics. On the palate, dark berries, cassis, blackberries, and plums are enriched 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 grilled radicchio and Gorgonzola wood fired pizza, cauliflower, and winter squash with Bagna Cauda dressing, and cedar-smoked pork spareribs. - WineryVarietal Composition:79% Cabernet Sauvignon10% Cabernet Franc4% Merlot3% Petit Verdot3% Malbec1% TannatAging: 100% oak-aged for 26 mo...

We made our first wine from Sonoma County grapes in 1876 and have been continuously making wine in the same stone cellar in Healdsburg, California since 1890.


Winemaker's Notes:

Simi Landslide Vineyard is located in the Alexander Valley in Sonoma, one of the premier growing areas in California for Cabernet Sauvignon. This 2009 Simi Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, rich flavors of chocolate with hints of cinnamon, blackberry fruit and exotic wood spice. On the palate, it has a velvety texture, and an outstanding long length.
