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

Grass and a touch of melon on the nose, grass and lemon on the palate, medium body and acidity, medium finish. Not much fruit at all. A standard Sauvignon Blanc, not bad but not great, either. I'm not a big S. Blanc fan, by the way.

Nose of citrus and tropical fruit that continued to open up long after the bottle was uncorked. Light to medium mouth bodied with a silky mouthfeel. Tastes of banana and grapefruit stand out with a background of citrus flavor. Very dry but balanced in acidity making it very refreshing by it self and wonderfully paired with a pasta dish.

Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose. Tart but without strong acidity. Not an abundance of fruit in this one. Smooth at the end but not much there.

95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% SemillonBrilliantly clear; light straw in color. Aromas of melon, lime zest, lemon grass, green apple, guava, muscat and apricot. Full fresh fruit ranging from bright citrus to lush tropical notes and finishing with a zest of lime and a slightly grassy note of green tea.
