K Vintners Art Den Hoed Viognier 2016

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Yakima Valley, WashingtonWine Advocate 92 points! Vinous 91 points! Jeb Dunnuck 91 points!K Vintners Art Den Hoed Viognier is a gorgeous white wine gem from the beautiful Yakima Valley of Washington State. Located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla, Charles Smith opened his first winery, K Vintners, in December of 2001. The first release, 1999 K Syrah from Walla Walla Valley, initiated the style of winemaking that Charles continues today: small lots of single vineyard Syrahs and field blends of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo, and Viognier, all of which are hand-picked, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and basket pressed."A shimmering yellow/green hue. Super salivating aromas of Asian pear, nectarine, crushed stone that give way to apple blossom, honeysuckle and an electrifying spine of minerality, anchoring the full palate of deliciousness."-Charles Smith"A beautiful wine that's very keenly priced, the 2016 Viognier Art DenHoed is very pretty, offering up notes of citrus blossom, musky peach and white cherries, with a subtle top note of leesy reduction. On the palate, it's elegantly glossy, pure and limpid, with juicy acids and a mouth-wateringly stony finish. Drink it over the next few years."-William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92 points!Enjoy K Vintners Art Den Hoed Viognier over the next 3-4 years with roasted chicken, baked swordfish, and grilled vegetables.

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
