Rich, deep black-ruby hue, aromas of black stone fruits and fruitcake, flavor notes of black cherries, black plums, baking spice and sweet wood that carry to a long, graceful finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKER'S NOTES Simi Winery Merlot expresses the perfect combination of our vine-specific vineyard care and the meticulous attention paid to the details in the vineyard. The lavish attention each vine receives allows Simi’s winemaking staff to practice winemaking with very minimal manipulation, resulting in wines that are true expressions of the diversity of Sonoma County. Sonoma County’s cool mornings and warm afternoons combined with unique characteristics of soil, slope and sunshine make Simi Winery Merlot elegant and balanced with pleasing hints of clove, cocoa and violets. THE WINE Appearance: Dark garnet Aroma: Bright notes of cherry, cranberry and blackberry accented with aromas of clove, cocoa and violets. Taste and Texture: Upfront red berry fruit leads to a medium bodied wine with elegance and balance. WINEMAKING DETAILS Winemaker: Steve Reeder Varietal composition: 91% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Aging: 12 months in French and American oak, 23% new Total acidity: 6.0 g/l pH: 3.67 Alcohol: 13.5% Release Date: August 2005 Cases Produced: 28,221
