Bold, berry flavors. Good value.
Fruity nose. A bit hot, and somewhat tannic, but with an amazing, rich finish. A nice steak would exponentially improve this wine.
Dark rum raisiny nose, with a thick sort of intense palate, lots of dark fruit, like blackberry jam without the sweetness. Seems a bit hot and unbalanced to me, but I like some of the fruits and oakiness here.
This is a sexy one...great ripe blueberries, racy oak and deep chocolatey tones. Dusty on the nose but full and complex on the palette. Would be great with some strong cheeses and dried fruit.
A lot of great depth and promiscuity here, what with the mixture of chocolate, ripe blueberries, and some light spicy oak. Sexy!
Very good not as good as ménage a

Upfront berry aromas with a hint of sweet oak. Cherries, berries and cassis flavors, elegant tannins, black spice, lingering finish.
A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A complex, rich wine with flavors and aromas of cherry, cedar and black fruit, all complemented by soft, ripe tannins. Simi Cabernet Sauvignon will go well with your steaks, filets and hearty dishes.
This veteran Sonoma County producer has a long and lusterous track record for cabernet sauvignon. Densely colored, this concentrated beauty offers accessible plum and berry flavors in a medium-bodied style. Serve it with grilled T-bone steaks for a match made in, or at least very near, heaven.

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.
Simi Vineyards has enjoyed a rich history in California wine making. One of the first wineries to rebound after prohibition and since then has lead the charge in making classic Alexander Valley Cabs among other prime selections. The first American client of famous French Enologist Michel Rolland, Simi owns 600 acres of estate vineyards in Alexander Valley including the Landslide vineyard, and so have access to the best fruit in the region. This 2007 shows that very well with intense black cherry, blackberry flavors balanced by supple tannins and toasty, spicy notes that linger on the finish. A classy wine that’s a stalwart of Sonoma County, showing real pedigree and at a great price.
