The Chateau Smith Cabernet Sauvignon by Charles Smith Wines is a fascinating cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon (98%) and Merlot (2%).
In the glass, this American red wine presents itself in a rich purple with violet reflections. The strong bouquet exudes wonderful aromas of black currants - accompanied by notes of roasted coffee beans and some black pepper. On the palate, delicate spicy nuances appear with a very well structured body that convinces with its profound and full character. The finish is wonderfully long and will be remembered.
