Simi Merlot 2010 750ml

Simi Merlot

Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2010 Sonoma County Merlot is spicy, elegant, and versatile with layer after luscious layer of red and black fruit playing off of each other. We’re happy with the wine’s structure and its wonderfully balanced acidity. The nose is a treasure trove of dark baking spices including clove and nutmeg, and it also offers earthy hints of black pepper, cedar, bay laurel, and sweet vanilla notes delightfully framing bright fruit aromas of blackberry, red cherry, and plum. Plum follows through on the palate, along with black cherry and rich blackberry preserves lightly lifted by toast and vanilla notes. This medium-boded wine finishes with soft, yet insistent cocoa tannins. We think you’d enjoy this Merlot with garlic spot prawns and mushroom pizza, cedar-smoked squab with Merlot-grape compote, or roasted salmon with wild risotto cake.

With the first sip, you’ll understand why the Alexander Valley is famed for Merlot and other red Bordeaux grapes. Nearly ¾’s of the fruit for this wine, rich with blackberry and plum, comes from this valley.
