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

This is a fun and boisterous wine. Drink it young, but give it some time in the glass to open up. Once you do it will reward you with lots of dark fruit, cassis, smoke and graphite and hints of vanilla on the nose. The first impression on the palette is an explosion of jammy dark berries, sweet spice, cassis, black pepper and a cross between smoked meats and French roast coffee beans, with a warm finish that highlights more of the smoke and some graphite and lingering black pepper and blackberries. It’s a blast of a wine for around $15 and a great accompaniment for grilled meats this summer or anytime.
