Community Tasting Notes 22

December 22, 2014 - Awful. A light-drinking friend (couldn't figure out a better way to describe him) brought over a bottle and wanted to try this. Always hoping to find a cabernet gem among low-priced bottles, it was game on. Ouch! Immediate mouth fill of something tart somewhat resembling a household cleaning product. There was nothing remotely close to notes of cabernet. Avoid.

July 12, 2014 - Generic, mediocre cabernet. Bright acidity, thin palate, red fruit dominates medium finish. Somewhat unbalanced but drinkable. Needs food, but will not hold up to rich, meaty meals; would recommend pairing with Southern Italian, red sauce, maybe pizza. Under $20 but poor QPR.

May 14, 2014 - I've always had a sweet spot for Simi as it was the producer that triggered my interest in wine. Garnet appearance. Scant cherry, raspberry, currant, dried mint, and vanilla aromas. Mid-bodied and dry, very food friendly, with good cut, smooth tannins, red and black fruit, and a little hard candy action on the finish. I enjoyed this.

March 14, 2014 - Mid-dark; light mint nose; berries; round, decent tannins, some varietal flavor but not deep, a little short. w/Saltimbocca1 person found this helpful Comments (1)
