The Honorable Riesling Riesling Usa Washington State Charles Smith 2009

Member Review by Amanda Schuster:

This is really impressive! Well balanced off dry style. Pleasant notes of lemon, peach and white flowers. Kind of reminded me of a tart lemon meringue pie. Would be awesome with Chinese food.

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

Notes of sweet fruits, caramel, cake, tastes like a cream puff. Delicious

The perfect balance; not too sweet, not too dry...as Goldilocks would say "Just Right!" Full of melon and peach on the nose with a slight reminiscence of yes, I am about to say it...corndogs!? Yeah, the batter on the outside. Delish!
