Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet with purple highlights. The aroma is of ripe black fruit/berries and cherries. Ripe, juicy fruits integrated with soft, balanced tannins, vanilla, cedar and spice. Supple and plush with a long finish.

For our Reserve Cabernet, we blend the finest lots from our diverse Alexander Valley vineyards to create a wine that is a balance of elegance, power, depth and complexity. The ideal growing season during 1997 allowed the grapes to ripen and develop fully, ensuring soft and integrated tannins and forward, rich fruit. Bright, blueberry, blackberry and deep cherry flavors combine with spice and vanilla. The finish is long, rich and supple. Excellent aging potential.

Simi, Sonoma County, California

In 1876, brothers Giuseppe and Pietro Simi began making wine in San Francisco from Sonoma County grapes and eventually planted vineyards near Healdsburg. Simi's historic stone cellars were built in 1890 and are still used to age the wines. Today, Simi is recognized as a leader in innovation and experimentation with a history of over 125 years of cutting-edge winemaking.

Their Alexander Valley vineyards possess some of the most diverse soils of any wine-growing region. Years of geologic activity – from an ancient mudflow to the meandering Russian River and Mayacama Creek – has created numerous distinct soil types and a range of microclimates. Here they grow the red Bordeaux varietals for their Reserve Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc as well as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for their Sendal.

Their Russian River Goldfields vineyard is planted to field selections chosen from the oldest and best Chardonnay vineyards in California. The combination of diverse clones and the cool, Russian River Valley climate produce Simi’s distinct Reserve Chardonnay.

Simi's winemakers focus on site-specific winemaking and use the most modern advances in vineyard management, fermentation and blending to best express the personality and flavors of each vineyard site.
