SIMI 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Mission Codename The 76er

Today’s delicious SIMI Winery 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon hails from the winery’s own premium vineyard sources.

This is SIMI’s entry-level Cab, but it drinks like a high end Reserve wine that commands a far higher price. This is budget-minded Cabernet at it’s very finest.

Very fragrant, with a lush bouquet that jumps right out of the glass to greet you on the nose, with bold blackberry, plum, raspberry, mocha, chocolate covered cherry, spice box, black currant, plum and a hint of flint.

Bold and juicy on the palate, with richly layered flavors of blackberry juice, blueberry, red currant, mocha, spice box, flinty mineral, plum and black pepper.

Alexander Valley in northeast Sonoma County is located on the western side of the Mayacamas range and extends westward to the edge of the Russian River Valley. This appellation was formerly considered a part of Dry Creek Valley, but became its own appellation in November 1984. The region is best known for exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but recently people are starting to discover its Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Chardonnay as well.

Very limited. Very highly recommended.
