2012 Simi Cab Sauv

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely deep red cherry notes to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some firm tannins and peppery notes. There some nice acidity to go along with the finish. It’s a firm cab. Very nice 88-89.

From the LCBO web site:

Grown in the cooler-climate Alexander Valley, this is an excellently structured and balanced Cabernet brimming with juicy cassis and fresh blackcurrant fruit backed by toasty oak. This is big enough for flavourful cuts of meat or aged cheeses and has the poise to cellar for 5+ years. (VINTAGES panel, Oct. 2014) $22.95
