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

Another contrived wine from Charles Smith. This guy has a undeserved reputation in my opinion . I have tasted 3 of his offerings a syrah , a merlot and now a cabernet. Boring and uninteresting. I am going to avoid any Charles Smith wines in the future. There are plenty of 2007 cabs from washington state in this price range that blow this wine out of the water. The nose is off. The mid palate is really boring. Very little berry concentration and the finish is watery.

I had this at a wine bar today. Great stuff at a great price. The labeling is a humorous bonus. I believe I know why the previous reviewer disliked this wine. It HAS to be decanted. I don't like this wine UNLESS it has been decanted. However, once the flavor has been allowed to percolate it's very tasty.

For the price point this wine is fine. Some What ordinary and not as full as I would choose. A table wine for the working class for sure ( that would be me). I can't afford to buy the wines I jump up and down over !

Lithe, elegant and nicely focused to show off its bright raspberry and cherry fruit. Lightly veiled in fine tannins, picking up white pepper and cinnamon notes on the lively finish. Drink now through 2015. 7,800 cases made. -HS
