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.

  • Charles Smith Riesling Columbia Valley Kung Fu Girl 2012


    After many years of seeing this wine get loads of accolades, I had to try it. I have tasted thousands of Rieslings over the past 40 years, as this is my favorite grape. The wine has a perfect acid balance and is on the drier side. Flavors are mostly citrus without the complexity or fruit offered in Germany. It is somewhat singular and simple but... Read More

  • Found a few bottles in a marketplace in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As a former resident of Mattawa, I was intriqued and purchased them. Found them to be earthy and interesting. Keep it up.

  • Purchases a few bottles of Cabernet at a Santa Fe market. Found the wine to be earthy and interesting. As a former resident of Mattawa, I am always interested in how the grape vineyards are progressing. Nicely done.
