SIMI 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon follows up on its deep, dark garnet color and ruby edge with lifted and pretty aromas of bright cherry, blackberry, plum, and cassis. Baking spice, cedar, and chocolate notes round out the aromatic profile. Compelling flavors of cassis, cherry, and plum along with black pepper, cedar, and clove add life to this full-bodied yet silky wine that finishes with soft, velvety cocoa tannins. Overall, the wine is elegant, structured, and inviting. Our Alexander Valley Cabernet will bring out the best in grilled strip loin with roasted mushroom jus, Moroccan spiced lamb shoulder with capers and preserved lemon, roasted venison with huckleberry sauce, or pork pot roast with prunes.
