This vintage, the Landslide Vineyard produced a wine that is intensely seductive with an alluring balance of dark fruit to bright fruit. Opaque deep red with a vibrant ruby edge, this
wine begins the seduction with sweet black cherry, cassis, plum, and blackberry fruit aromas along with dark roasted coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and smoky mineral notes. Subtle
wafts of violets, hints of mint and celery seed complete the aromatics. On the palate, dark berries, cassis, blackberries, and plums are enriched with roasted coffee accents. The entry is
big, full and rich, followed by a focused middle and a youthful finish with a slight grip and dark roasted offering.
This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with grilled radicchio and
Gorgonzola wood fired pizza, cauliflower and winter squash with Bagna Cauda dressing, and cedar-smoked pork spareribs.
Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot,
3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, 1% Tannat
Huge fan of Simi and this one doesn't disappoint. Very good, complex and bold but not too powerful.
