SIMI Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
SIMI 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon follows up on its deep, dark garnet color and ruby edge with lifted and pretty aromas of bright cherry, blackberry, plum, and cassis. Baking spice, cedar, and chocolate notes round out the aromatic profile. Compelling flavors of cassis, cherry, and plum along with black pepper, cedar, and clove add life to this full-bodied yet silky wine that finishes with soft, velvety cocoa tannins. Overall, the wine is elegant, structured, and inviting.
Two brothers who immigrated to Northern California in the mid-1800s saw promising similarities between Sonoma County and their native Tuscany where wine had been made for centuries. In 1876, they founded SIMI in Healdsburg, California. Today, we claim the honour of having been in continuous operation longer htan any other winery in Sonoma County, and we still make wine in the stone cellar built by the Simi brothers in 1890.
