TN: 1995 Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (USA, California, Sonoma County)

1995 Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - USA, California, Sonoma County (2/16/2007)Fantastic vibrant color. No sign of a 12 year old showing, not even on the edges. The nose shows is pure black currant and cassis. The palate reveals a super lush character with slightly sweet tannins, great dark fruit, some tar and leather. A great acid level that would make this great on my table with a grilled steak and frites. (soon). The finish is very long and smooth. I traded a 2003 Pride Cab Reserve for three of these and I think I did ok.

92/100 (92 pts.)
