Winemaker's Notes

"A rich, expressive, mouthful of racy blackberry and wild berry flavors, with hints of spice and light toasty oak."
92-94 rating, Wine Spectator Barrel Sample

Alexander Valley possesses the greatest diversity of soil types in any winegrowing region of California. It has a long history of dramatic geological activity which created numerous soil types and microclimates. This diversity allows us to produce wines with a great range of flavor, texture and character.

Simi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is created by keeping all of our diverse vineyard blocks separate throughout the winemaking process. This allows the winemaker to select the best vineyard lots for the final blend. The blend is created over a two year period by selecting the best barrels from the most intense lots. The complexity of this wine is created not only from our vineyards sites, but also from blending with other classic Bordeaux varietals.

This unique combination of vineyard sites and varietals results in a wine that is both powerful and elegant, with Alexander Valley's signature luscious, velvety tannins.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
