Really good fruit on the nose at first, in a restrained style with lovely bay and vanilla tones adding complexity a little cigar wrapper as well. Overall a sweet, gentle herbal and slightly medicinal impression. Very smooth and suave at first with good fruit but also quite astringent tannins. Not particularly tannic but with a gritty edge to the tannins. Earthy and dark, with baked spice tones that compliment the red plum skin, apple skin, and wild berry fruit. This is a bit too woody with quite the spiced and vanilla toned finish that is very drying. The tannins need to mellow for this to show better. Give it 2 years. 2011-2020 88pts

Leather and spice with cedar notes in the aroma. Red cherry taste with no finish and no acidity.

A very woodsy, dry, dusty wine. Its quite elegant at first, but nice cherry and vanilla notes. Still needs to age. Tasted at the Snooth PTP California Cab blind tasting: http://www.snooth.com/talk/topic/snooth-ptp-california-cabernet

Cherry and vanilla, very smooth, lack of finish. Almost too smooth for my taste, lacks edges and character.

Divine with a lovely filet mignon. I noticed how I could really taste the full breadth of flavors in this cabernet with the steak. I'm a long-time consumer of red wines, but new to describing them, sorry!

"Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2004 is deep


External Review
05/23/2010

95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Cabernet Franc, and 2.5% Petite VerdotThe 2004 Simi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, dark, crimson red appearance with intense aromas of black fruit with sweet herbs, vanilla and coffee. Deep dark flavors of plum, cassis and black cherry are layered with coffee, cocoa and vanilla and spiced with sweet herbs. Concentrated and full on the palate from start to finish, ending with ripe, chewy tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

SonomaCounty’s Alexander Valley possesses the greatest diversity of soil types of any winegrowing region in California. Dramatic geological activity has created numerous soil types and microclimates allowing Simi Winery to select from a diverse range of vineyard sources for wines of distinct flavor, texture and character. Simi ReserveCabernet Sauvignon is created by keeping each vineyardblock separate throughout the winemaking process. Winemaker Steve Reeder selects the best vineyard lots for the final blend. The complexity of this wine is created not only from our vineyard sites, but also from blendingwith other classic Bordeaux varietals. This unique combination of vineyard sites and varietals result in a wine that is both powerful and elegant, with Alexander Valley's signature luscious, velvety tannins.
