Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Landslide Vineyard

This vintage of Landslide is deeper, darker, and more sultry in nature than usual, with great concentration of fruit both blue and black in nature. Opaque deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, this wine entices with warm and inviting aromas of sweet black cherry, cassis, plum, blackberry, raspberry, dark roasted coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and smoky mineral notes. On the palate, dark berries and plums meet up with roasted coffee accents. The entry is big, full, and rich, followed by a focused middle and a youthful fi nish with a slight grip and dark roasted offering.

This vintage, our Landslide Vineyard produced a wine that is intensely seductive with an alluring balance of dark fruit to bright fruit. Opaque deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, this wine begins the seduction with sweet black cherry, cassis, plum, and blackberry fruit aromas along with dark roasted coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and smoky mineral notes. Subtle wafts of violets, hints of mint and celery seed complete the aromatics. On the palate, dark berries, cassis, blackberries, and plums are enriched with roasted coffee accents. The entry is big, full and rich, followed by a focused middle and a youthful finish with a slight grip and dark roasted offering. Simi was founded in 1876 by Giuseppe and Pietro Simi.
