Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec, & 3% Petit Verdot

The 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.

Winemaker Notes
We turned to two of our estate vineyards, Los Amigos—a classic valley floor vineyard, and Red Fan—a foothill vineyard with great sun exposure—to form the backbone of this wine. We also used fruit from other noted Alexander Valley vineyards. We blended in small amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot to accentuate additional red and black fruit flavors and also to contribute subtle hints of spices and herbs. During fermentation, the developing wine remained on the skins for 31 days to increase extraction and color. All of the wine underwent a secondary, malolactic fermentation and was then aged in small oak barrels (54% new) for 20 months.
Food Pairing Notes
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.

Quickly ascended to one of the best cabs I've ever had; ever. Can't wait to visit the vineyard! Nice oak, velvety smooth with a perfect blend of tannins, fruit and dark berries. Kudos!!!
