IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

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
Vineyard Notes
2014 began with a wet spring. The rains stopped just at flowering, setting up an extended ripening season with moderate daytime temperatures of 85–92°F, giving full fruit expression. Cool nights and foggy mornings made for a slow, gentle ripening. We began picking the fruit for this wine on September 16 and finished on October 22. Our Brix at harvest ranged from 24 to 26.3 degrees.
Winemaker Notes
We turned to two of our estate vineyards, Los Amigos—a classic valley floor vineyard, and Red Fan—a foothill vineyard with great sun exposure, to form the backbone of this wine. We also used fruit from other noted Alexander Valley vineyards, including Encinos, Big River, Hoot Owl Creek, Hoffman, and Belle Terre. We blended in 2% Cabernet Franc to add an element of spice and cassis, and 10% Merlot to add softness and suppleness. 1% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot add even more dimension to the aromatics and rich fruit flavors. During fermentation, the developing wine remained on the skins for 26 days to increase extraction and color. All of the wine underwent a secondary, malolactic fermentation and was then aged in small oak barrels (25% new) for 14 months.
