good wine for this price range, nice to have for everyday
Upon first opening the bottle I felt that the body was rather thin for a cabernet and the finish was still a little rough. After letting the bottle aerate for a while it was better but still thin. Aging this for another four or five years should help the finish.
Wine Maker Notes
Alexander Valley was shaped by dramatic geologic activity-from an ancient landslide that changed the course of the Russian River, to earthquake upheavals that redistributed whole sections of land. The incredible diversity of soil types and microclimates produces wines with velvety textures and bright, luscious flavors. Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the best of Alexander Valley, with the bright fruit character and elegance that made this world-class growing region famous.
We made our first wine from Sonoma County grapes in 1876 and have been continuously making wine in the same stone cellar in Healdsburg, California since 1890. As we have from the beginning, our wines reflect Sonoma County a small, scenic and stunningly diverse region along the Pacific Coast.
