Simi Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
This vintage, our Landslide Vineyard produced a wine that is youthful and elegant, with deep f ruit character. Opaque and deep red with a vibrant ruby edge. The nose shows violets, blackberry, chocolate, cassis, and bramble berry, with notes of toasty oak. Inviting, f resh, and intriguing, this wine will continue to integrate flavors and aromas over time. Savory, dense flavors of dried blueberry, bramble berry, and dark cocoa are followed by a broad mid-palate. Toasty, sweet oak f rames the f ruit and lends structure. The wine finishes with chewy tannins and a touch of vanilla. The acid balance makes this wine inviting, rich, and delicious. This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with pappardelle pasta with duck and porcini ragu, braised short ribs and polenta, or grilled portobello mushroom on toasted brioche.
