Wines of Substance

The original thought was to be a one wine brand, with a single minded vision to produce the best value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon in America. How do you go about this? Traditional winemaking. Natural fermentations. Barrel-aging. Plus, bottling unfiltered and unfined. In essence, making the wines in small batch winemaking integrity, but doing so on a larger scale. The wine is black. The label definitively says, "This is Cabernet Sauvignon." And also, with the CS, you know who made this wine: Charles Smith.

Wines of Substance Cabernet Sauvignon

Opaque, deep, dark and dense. Ya, this Cabernet Sauvignon has astounding depth in color and flavor. Blackberry, black plum, cigar box. Silky smooth and continuing long with pencil lead and wet earth. With a finish that says WTF. Okay... Look that one up. Tremendous.

Wines of Substance Sauvignon Blanc

Electrifying. Energy galore! Where there’s fruit...there’s green papaya, kiwi, d’anjou pear, straw, kiss of jasmine. Where there’s minerality…there’s seashells, oyster, flint, gun powder, warm sand. Where there’s complexity…there’s balance and purity. There is Substance.
