Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2007 Sonoma County Merlot generously offers aromas of ripe red cherry, black plum, bright cranberry, clove, cinnamon, hints of cedar and toasty oak, followed by opulent flavors of red plum, cassis, and blackberry preserves that have been gently interlaced with clove. This medium-bodied wine is nicely structured and finishes with soft chocolate. We suggest pairing this Merlot with lasagna Bolognese, prime rib, or coq au vin.
In 1876, brothers Giuseppe and Pietro Simi began making wine in San Francisco from Sonoma County grapes and eventually planted vineyards near Healdsburg. Simi's historic stone cellars were built in 1890 and are still used to age the wines. Today, Simi is recognized as a leader in innovation and experimentation with a history of over 125 years of cutting-edge winemaking.
