2017 Simi Chardonnay out of Sonoma County is barrel fermented and influenced by malolactic fermentation. The result is a richly aromatic wine zingy citrus, peach, and vanilla character. Simi has maintained its reputation for quality and value for ages. Nice wine for $15.
Simi 1876 Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine (1876 being the year the Simi brothers founded the winery) is actually a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. This beaut little bubbly shows layers of flavor: raspberry, cherry, citrus, and toast. Impressive sparkler. 36.00
