Great wine begins in the vineyard, which is why Simi made its home in the heart of the spectacular Sonoma County over 140 years ago.
Simi Sonoma County Merlot is deep garnet with a ruby edge. The nose is a compelling mixture of sour cherry, blackberry, and red plum with cocoa, clove, and earthy hints of cedar, bay laurel, and smoky bacon framing the bright fruit. On the palate, bright red fruit, red plum, black cherry, blackberry, and wild berry meld with light toast, vanilla, and a hint of fresh, sweet herbs, while spice lends depth and weight. The wine finishes with toasty oak and spice.
We think you'd enjoy pairing our Merlot with garlic prawn and mushroom pizza, smoked quail, or roasted salmon with wild risotto. (from the vintner)
