This Syrah saturates the palate with aromas and flavor. Black plum, shiitake, toasted rye, tangerine zest, dried tarragon and aged soy sauce. There are many more that could be added
to this list. All this perfectly knitted together with the most compelling and harmonious fashion. The wine keeps its end of the bargain and it’s the real deal!
This Syrah pairs well with lamb, beef, game dishes, smoked and grilled meats, Asian-fusion and Mediterranean cuisines as well as sauteed foie gras.
Charles Smith’s explosion onto the world wine scene has been nothing less than phenomenal. Winemaker Charles Smith managed Rock & Roll bands in Europe for 11 years before moving to Walla Walla and starting K Vintners on a shoestring. While Charles’ wines radiate the excitement of his Rock & Roll roots, they are grounded in serious quality and value. Charles bottles his brands under several labels. Charles Smith Wines are made for the way that most wines are being consumed today - the day that they are purchased - and are equal parts accessible, affordable and top quality. Charles also produces some of the most interesting and highly rated Syrah in America under his original K Vintners label. K Vintners’ wines are made in very small quantities and are crafted to appeal to the most discriminating connoisseurs. In the past 10 years Charles Smith Wines and K Vintners have garnered 66 scores of 95 points and above and over 300 scores of 90 points and above from the leading U.S. wine publications : Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, and Wine Enthusiast.
