Coming from a downright hot vintage, this wine offers quite pure aromas of black currant and black fruit. The palate brings more of the same, giving a very pure unencumbered-by-new-oak look at Washington Cabernet. Lightly grippy-tannins provide support.
Focused and distinctive, with juicy dark plum and currant fruit at the core and savory notes that swim around an expressive finish, draped in fine tannins. Drink now through 2020. 29,000 cases made.

From the first aromas of black fruit, pencil lead and forest floor, you’re in for something special. This is a benchmark of dry Pacific Northwest Bordeaux-esque Cabernet Sauvignon—with intense flavor, depth and complexity.

A lot of the full-bodied Cabs out there are either full of themselves or just full of it. Not Chateau Smith. It stays true to the old-world winemaking style from Bordeaux and honest to everyone who drinks it. And while we don’t actually have a chateau…this award-winning dry Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% the real deal.
