Charles Smith Boom Boom Syrah Red Table Wine-Other Wa 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Rhone Report: A straight up, decadent Syrah... deep purple, opaque color... ripe aromatics of cassis and black fruits, leafy tobacco, meat and a touch of funky earth. The wine is medium to full bodied and has sweet fruit, fresh acidity and grippy tannin on the medium length finish... an awesome barbeque wine and a crowd pleaser for sure... (5/2010)

First there was K Vintners, then the Magnificent Wine Company and now winemaker Charles Smith brings you his latest revelation. Charles Smith Wines: The Modernist Project is a response to how people generally consume wine today, that is immediately…as in immediately after being purchased at a market, restaurant or bar, to be drunk straight away. Wine in this category is typically ether simple, or is a wine that would be much better a few years down the road. ‘Modernist Project’ wines are about putting as much into the bottle as possible. The intent is to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity with regards to variety—that is merlot that tastes like merlot—and to the vineyard—wine that tastes like where it was grown. The wines are full of flavor, balanced, and true to their place of origin. Owner-winemaker Charles Smith with his big hair, kick ass attitude and bold packaging arrived in the Walla Walla Valley following eleven years in Scandinavia managing rock bands. Originally hailing from northern California, he has been involved with wine personally and professionally his entire life. Read less

Contrived with no aging potential whatsoever. This wine did not evolve at all in the bottle. I would describe it as boring. Not worth the drink. Very disappointing.
