Drink now or cellar for another 15 years. No need to decant before serving.

Charles Smith grew up in California in the Sierra Nevada foothills, but it was only in later life that he fell in love with winemaking. Inspiration struck while he was working as a rock band manager and traveling extensively in Europe, and he later decided to return home and teach himself how to make excellent wines that would rival those he had tried on the road. He chose the pristine terroir of Washington State for his new project which quickly blossomed and developed a cult following amongst local wine lovers.

From the first vintage in 1999 when Smith made just 330 cases, he’s continued to innovate and experiment with different grapes and winemaking techniques. This creativity and drive is just one reason why he’s been named Winemaker of the Year by Food & Wine and by Wine Enthusiast magazines.

This powerful single vineyard Cabernet is from Smith’s Substance range which captures the pure essence of each grape variety and terroir. On the nose there are intense notes of cassis, blackberry, and dark cherry along with enticing hints of woodsmoke, tobacco leaf, and oaky spice. The first sip reveals a punchy full body, firm tannins, and a core of rich dark fruit which lingers on the tongue. Try pairing with hearty red meat dishes like barbecued ribs, tomato-based pasta dishes, or charcuterie.
