Black fruit and graphite on the nose, full-bodied, with some meat, peppery and cloves notes to go with the fruit on the palate. More complex than the nose would suggest, with low-medium acidity and light tannins. Very easy drinking at a good price.
External Reviews for Charles and Charles Red
On the lighter side, with modest blackberry and currant fruit lingering against some crisp tannins. Drink now through 2014.
A project of Charles Smith and Charles Bieler, this easy-drinking, approachable red is a low-budget expression of a popular blend. The sweet cherry fruit is lightly candied, and it bears a strong scent of toast. The flavors are simple, juicy and quite pretty, with a streak of fresh cut tobacco.
