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

Truly a vineyard in the bottle, intensely earthy, gamey, luscious red raspberries in the warm sun. -Charles Smith90% Grenache, 10% SyrahFrom the Armada Vineyard, of Cayuse and Christophe Baron fame. Armada Vineyard ia a very stony, ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. This vineyard is one of the very few in the Valley that is farmed biodynamically."The Boy" was the first wine Charles Smith made that was not Syrah and as a result, put the "K" on the back label. Of course, this left a simple white label, reminiscent of the Beatles White Album. However, one thing lead to another and it all left Charles thinking of yet another musical artist, French chanteur Serge Gainsbourg and his song, The Boy. The lyric's go "I'm the boy who can enjoy invisibility," a sentiment much appreciated by Charles. Thus K The Boy label came to be.
