One of my all-time fav Alex’s. No fancy label, no crazy art, no prose on the back about the balance of sky and earth and fire on a family who brought winemaking with them from 12th century Europe. Just: SIMI. And you can buy it at most decent groceries. This one’s still just black ink with ruby edges. OMG TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF NOW just INTOXICATING sensual nose. Velvet-hammers of tannin. Really not feeling that much age on it–maybe a tiny bit polished, but overall bright and lively. Fruit might not out last structure, but we will see.
