K Vintners Tempranillo/Cabernet Sauvignon El Jefe En Chamberlin 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

80% Tempranillo & 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Muddle together black leather, fire roasted tomato, bull's blood, ancient spice and the sweat of one talented matador. Strain into glass.....On second thought, save the trip and the mess: just drink the El Jefe at home. 137 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2007 vintage rated 95 points by Wine Advocate.

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
