Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
100% Pinot Noir

Color: Ruby hue with a bright edge

Aroma: The aromas in this vintage jump from the glass with elegance and finesse. Big, bright raspberry and sour cherry interlace with gently lifted aromas of violets and savory notes of gingerbread, sage, and fire toasted oak. Subtle notes of smoke complete the aromatics.

Flavor: Bright notes of sour cherry and cranberry are framed with hints of toasted bread and smoke. Ginger and earthy notes of sage follow up on the mid-palate. Nicely structured with firm acidity, red raspberry and notes of cocoa and toasty oak linger on the finish.

Vineyard Notes
SIMI's 2011 Pinot Noir comes from three prestigious Sonoma County appellations where morning fog is slow to lift and evenings are quickly cooled by the Pacific Ocean—precisely the growing conditions favored by this grape variety. Each sub-appellation produces fruit with distinct Pinot Noir qualities. Carneros and Sonoma Coast sources fruit from the Sangiacomo and Hendricks Vineyards while Dutton Vineyard provides fruit from the Russian River Valley.

Carneros (60%): Fruit from this cool region gives focus, balance, structure, and purity, with notes of red cherry and dried flowers.

Russian River Valley (30%): The slightly warmer Russian River Valley offers concentration, richness, texture, generosity, and spice highlighted by plum and black cherry fruit.

Sonoma Coast (10%): Coastal vineyards deliver depth, acidity, and concentration with raspberry and cranberry fruit.

Food Pairing Notes
SIMI's philosophy is to produce a Pinot Noir that is fruit forward and well-balanced, pairing beautifully with simple, rustic food. This wine is marvelous when paired with dishes like roasted chicken with cranberry sage chutney, grilled pork loin with cherries and almonds, or a blackened cod with goat cheese polenta.

Clean and fruity but not simple. Notes of berry, warm non biting finish of cinnamon even without any time to breathe.
