TASTING NOTES BY WINEMAKER CHARLES SMITH

What a beautiful nose. Black cherry, black cassis, and cut tobacco is just the invitation. A richness comes into play, resting on a blanket of wet earth, gravel, fresh thyme, and maple sap. The wine continues to unfold itself with a long, lingering finish.

Winery Description

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.
