Comments: The Simi 1996 Reserve Russian River Estate Chardonnay marks an evolution at Simi. It is the first year that the Simi Reserve Chardonnay has been solely made from our own estate vineyard in Sonoma Countys Russian River Valley. The skillful combination of many different clones from the classic Goldridge sandy loam soil makes for a wine of exquisite style, complexity and quality.
