Cs Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Collection Substance Jack's Vineyard 2014

Member Review by zufrieden:

Simple label - nearly identical with the regular CS Substance offering - but quite a notch up in quality, the Vineyard Collection (Jack's Vineyard) is a big winner: Almost black in the glass, with a truly wonderful blackberry, vanilla and cedar nose, this wine enters the mouth as smooth as the best cream, with nuances of cassis, red currant, and cherry on the palate. So smooth, sure and pure, this is a Washington State treasure and one to beat. Perfect now but can last several more years at least. 93/94.

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
