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.

  • Charles Smith Merlot Columbia Valley the Velvet Devil 2007

    Snoothrank:

    plum notes with a light smoky, pepper. Smooth, even velvety. I hadn't thought caramel, before reading another review, but I think that is right. Delish. It was a beautiful choice for a party, to sip. Then I paired it with an exceptionally spicy Masoor Dal, incredible contrast Read More

    Snoothrank:

  • Charles Smith Riesling Washington Kung Fu Girl 2008

    Snoothrank:
