Charles Smith Boom Boom Syra 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

" Syrah: 52% Yakima Valley AVA—Upland Vineyards, Olsen Brothers, and Den Hoed; 19% Wahluke Slope AVA - Sundance, Don Talcott, Northridge, Katherine Leone, Pheasant, and Clifton; 18% Columbia AVA – Sagemoor, Buoy, and Weyns; Primitivo: 100% Wahluke Slope AVA, Northridge. About: Charles Smith Wines: the Modernist Project focuses on the way people generally consume wine today, immediately! Wine in this category is typically either simple, or a wine that would be much better a few years down the road. Charles Smith Wines are wines that are about putting as much into the bottle as possible. The intent is to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity of variety (i.e., 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 place of origin. For Charles Smith Wines the fruit is sourced from some of Washington State’s finest vineyards. Greatest attention is paid to those growers that practice sustainable farming methods. Owner-winemaker Charles Smith with his big hair, kick ass attitude and bold packaging has earned the moniker “rock star” of Washington State Syrah. Charles Smith arrived in the Walla Walla Valley following 11 years in Scandinavia managing rock bands. Originally from northern California, he has been involved with wine personally and professionally his entire life. In 2009 Food & Wine Magazine recognized Charles as “Winemaker of the Year.” ~ Winery notes

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
