Chateau Smith Cabernet 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Classy and refined, it's just damn amazing. Casiss, pencil lead, fresh herb and crushed granite. It is satin smooth and elegant, further defined with a super long finish.

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

Dark and persistent with layers of red and black fruit, baking spice and earth.

Intensives, sauberes, sortentypisches Bukett nach schwarzen Beeren und Cassis mit feinen Röstaromen. Weicher Auftakt mit schmelzigem Körper, guter Struktur und reifen, runden Tanninen. Mit Aromen von Cassis und Holunderbeeren ausklingend.
