More information

 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. 

Vinification for  the Chateau Smith Cabernet Sauvignon

After careful harvesting of the grapes in the growing areas of Yakima Valley and Columbia Valley, the mash is fermented. After that, the wine is stored on the yeast for 10 months. Charles Smith winery uses 40% new French barrels to produce red wine. 

Food recommendation for the Cabernet Sauvignon Chateau Smith 

This dry red wine from America is the perfect accompaniment to pork medallions in a bacon coat, strong beef goulash with Swabian spaetzle or even spicy cheese specialities.
