External Reviews for Simi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
Simi 2009 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon follows up on its deep, dark garnet color with lifted, pretty aromas of clove, cinnamon, hints of cedar, mint chocolate, and toasty oak notes that beautifully frame dark fruit. Compelling flavors of cassis, blackberry, and plum along with black pepper, cedar, and clove keep this dark and somewhat brooding wine from being too serious. This medium-to full-bodied Alexander Valley Cabernet will bring out the best in roasted mushroom and wild nettle pesto pizza, or charcoal-grilled beef carpaccio with asiago-onion salad. - Winery
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, current winemaker Steve Reeder has won consistent accolades throughout the industry including making a Wine Spectator #1 Wine of the Year when he worked at Chateau St. Jean. Simi owns 600 acres of estate vineyards in Alexander Valley including the Landslide vineyard, and so Reeder has access to the best fruit in the region. This 2009 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.
Dark red with a ruby cast. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, and plum laced with cedar, spice and rose petals. Lush black cherry and black berry notes are highlighted with vanilla and a dusting of cocoa and herbs.
