Tasting Notes
SIMI 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, dark garnet in color with a ruby edge. Toasty oak frames and adds depth to dark fruit aromas of blackberry, plum, and black cherry, leading into intriguing notes of cocoa, cassis, pepper berry, and cedar. Black fruit dominates the entry followed by plum and black cherry with a spicy, lifted mid-palate. A bit of peppery cassis leads the finish with some roasted coffee notes and supple yet firm tannins. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
