This summer I was introduced to Charles Smith Wine. I must say, I was very please to have met the wine.
Charles Smith was at one time a manager for Scandinavian Rock Bands, and he has the hair to prove it. He also has a great motto: “it is just wine, drink it”. Even though his rock-and-roll days are over, he now owns a winery in Walla Walla, Washington, offering many different labels and many different wines. The two I have tasted so far, I have very much liked.
The first wine I tried was called “The Red Devil“. It is a 2009 Merlot, and was quite delicious. While I normally find Merlot to be earthy, this glass was fresh, flavorful and paired nicely with my vegan pizza.
The next wine I tried was the Charles & Charles Rose. It was a hot day, and I was ready for a refreshing drink. The Rose smelled of raspberry and white grapes and had sweet and savory taste. Very nice.
I am looking forward to my next glass of Charles Smith – I think I may be a Charles Smith Groupie.
