Simi Landslide Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
I loved the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Landslide (there's 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec in the blend). It's a concentrated, rich, medium to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that has lots of black raspberry, spice, dried soils, and graphite aromas and flavors. With plenty of mid-palate oomph, ripe tannin, and a good finish, it should drink nicely for 10-12 years, if not longer.
Reduced and tannic, this is a full-bodied highly concentrated and robust wine, softly approachable with moderate red and black fruit and a lasting sense of herbaceousness.
Shows mature notes of cedar, dried dark berry and crushed rock, with edgy tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2023.
