From what i have read on the Squires Board the Simi is not nearly as good as the Sebastiani AV 01 which is in the same price point.
mini sebastiani simi comparrison
I have not tried the Simi but other than the wierd aftertaste the Sebastiani is absolutely delicious for $19.00. Would never have guessed it. It is a great wine with a tremendous mid-palate but then the finish has this weird bitter thing on it. Worth the money though. I blind tasted this last night with 1/2 dozen friends and they were all throughly impressed.
