Much of the fruit for this luscious red comes from Simi's Red Fan and Los Amigos estate vineyards in Alexander Valley, with the remainder sourced from across Sonoma. The 2013 growing season was particularly friendly to red grapes, allowing them to develop concentrated, elegant flavors and bright acidity. The 2013 Simi Sonoma County Merlot is a blend of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec aged for 14 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels of which 24% was new. Deep garnet with touches of ruby on the edges, this wine has an explosive nose of blackberry, plum, nutmeg, cocoa and hints of earth and cedar. The wine has flavors of smoky bacon, berry fruit with exotic spice and toasty notes. A brilliant wine for a meager price. If all Merlot was this good for the cost, people would be purchasing a lot more Merlot.
