Simi Merlot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Merlot is deep red in color with garnet edges. Aromas of spicy clove and cinnamon leap from the glass with the essence of red fruits, including Bing cherries and red berries, combining on the palate. This wine offers subtle tannins and lush ripe flavors accented by final notes of toast and cocoa. It pairs beautifully with a classic French dip, veal chops or grilled sausages.

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

Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2009 Sonoma County Merlot is spicy and a bit dark and brooding as it opens with aromas of exotic sandalwood, sweet dark spices, cloves, and cinnamon along with hints of black pepper and bay. The rich, dark character continues with layered flavors of red plum, black cherry, and blackberry preserves, framed with notes of toasty oak, that give depth to this medium-bodied, nicely structured wine. The finish offers soft cocoa tannins. We suggest you enjoy this Merlot with exotic mushroom and oven-dried Roma tomato polenta torte, panroasted duck breast with Bing cherry sauce, or roasted salmon and goat cheese latke. - WineryAppellation: Sonoma CountyVarietal Composition:98% Merlot2% Cabernet SauvignonFermentation: 100% stainless steelAging: 22 months in a combination of small French and American oak barrels (32% new)Total Acidity: 5.8 g/LpH: 3.65Alcohol: 13.5%Bottling Date: January 18, 2012Release Date: February 8, 2012Cases Produced: 15,484
