1999 Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Alexander Valley

Estate: Simi Winery

Region: Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:April 3, 2016

Slight garnet red which looks like it is starting to brick. Quite earthy and savory on the nose such as, forest floor, damp compost and mushrooms. Almost like truffles. Very light dark fruits on the palate. Definitely near the end, might be gone in a couple years because it will completely thin out. But now it has undertones of mushrooms and soft similar earthy/vegetal notes like the mushrooms. Low to moderate tannins (4.5/10) and medium bodied. Moderate finish that carries the tannins and body to the finish. Very elegant and enjoyable for an old Sonoma Cab.
