Reviews and Ratings

Simi Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon reflects our dramatic estate vineyard in the Alexander
Valley where the fruit for this wine was grown. We blended in 9% Merlot to add
softness and suppleness, along with small amounts of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit
Verdot and Tannat to add even more dimension to the aromatics and rich fruit flavors.
During fermentation, the developing wine remained on the skins for 34 days to increase
extraction and color. The wine was then aged in small oak barrels (78% new) for 26
Deep, dark and nearly opaque with a ruby edge, the 2007 Landslide offers up evocative
aromas of chocolate laced with cinnamon, blackberry, plum, black cherry and exotic
wood spice. On the palate, a velvety entry is followed by concentrated black cherry and
red plum fruit accented with toffee. It finishes with a hint of roasted coffee. Supple
tannins add depth and length. This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with filet
mignon with Cabernet mushroom sauce or pan-roasted chicken with Swiss chard,
pancetta and onions in creamy polenta.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
