Charles Smith Wines of Substance Substance Cs Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Member Review by zufrieden:

This modestly priced Cab has a nice cassis, blueberry and cherry nose - possibly with some gentle scent of pansies... if you can believe it. That's quite a lot of complexity at this price, and on entry, one gets a bit of almond bitterness and French Oak, plus a flood of cassis and blackberry fruit. This will age a few years. Oak will blow off in about 3 years. 88.

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
