Food Pairings for Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
Editorial Reviews for Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
Very sweet and assertive on the nose, but the integrated spice notes meld well with green and smoked peppers. Lot’s of emergent red cassis notes. Smells pretty fresh and well balanced. Medium bodied, a bit too much drying tannin right up front and a touch lean on the mid-palate but with nice freshness, and a good balance of fruit, earth, and wood spice notes. Refreshing acidity and decent length but the finale is a bit bitter. This ends up feeling a bit too extracted and comes off a touch clumsy in the end. 85pts
Very pretty ruby color. Oaky, minty nose with some blackberry. Initial palate sensation is fruity, almost sweet. Again blackberry flavors, followed by some "woody" things. Tannins sneak up in there, but not terribly distracting. Medium-length, pleasant finish.
Very rich and full of sweet fruit. The nose is of cedar box and plums. Its over-extracted, but i rather enjoyed it. Slightly bitter on the finish Tasted at the Snooth PTP California Cab blind tasting: http://www.snooth.com/talk/topic/snooth-ptp-california-cabernet
I drank a bit of this wine after the bottle had been opened the previous day, then re-corked until we consumed it. I really enjoyed a lot about this wine. It had a great nose with aromas of raisin and spice. On the palette, there was a perfect amount of dryness to it. Not enough to make the drinker feel uncomfortable, but enough to leave a pleasant satisfaction in the mouth. The flavor profile includes cherry and mocha. I'd love to try more of this wine on another occasion where the bottle hasn't been opened for so long.
dried dark fruit, slight oak and a touch of licorice on the nose...definitely taste the oak on the midpalate with a big plum on the finish...medium bodied..for $21.99, very good effort...
We shared a bottle - excellent taste decantered. We both have the worst headache this morning! For the price of this wine, and the headache that followed, I am grateful we only purchased 1 bottle. Normally we love Alexander Valley cabernets!
External Reviews for Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
The '06 Simi Cabernet is clean, quiet and leaning very slightly to the greener end of the varietal spectrum; firm; middleweight; to be drunk in the relatively near term.
Appearance: Dark red with a ruby cast. Aroma: Blackberry, cassis, and plum laced with cedar, spice and rose petals. Flavor: Lush black cherry and black berry are highlighted with vanilla and a dusting of cocoa and herbs.
Big fruit-forward aromas of blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, and plum accented with clove, vanilla, roasted coffee, and a lifted note of cedar. This wine stays rich and big on the palate.
Opaque ruby core with a magenta rim. The bouquet is well integrated, with subtle sandalwood and cedar spice with hints of dried red plum and cassis. This is a page out of old-school California cabernet, with its nice balance of oak alongside a gene... Neil Mechanic.

Smooth, ripe and polished, with lots of pretty plum, currant, black cherry and spicy Cabernet flavors to admire. The tannins are ripe and polished, too. Drink now through 2003.
Produced in the rich and complex Bordeaux style, this wine exhibits aromas and flavors of cherry, cedar and black currant, with a long fruit finish.
Alexander Valley was shaped by dramatic geologic activity—from an ancient landslide that changed the course of the Russian River to earthquake upheavals that redistributed whole sections of land. The incredible diversity of soil types and microclimates produces wines with velvety textures and bright, luscious flavors. Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the best of Alexander Valley with a bright fruit character and elegance that has made the wines of this unparalleled growing region famous.
Appearance: Dark red with a ruby cast. Aroma: Ripe plum and sweet raisin laced with blackberry, soft cedar and spice. Flavor: Fresh berries and cassis with undertones of tobacco and lush, ripe tannins ending in a long, velvety finish.
