Aromatic, classic, refined Cabernet Sauvignon. Graphite, cassis and pencil shavings at its core that gives way to a long satisfying finish. Chateau Smith indeed!

Wine AdvocateMy favorite of the Charles Smith releases, the 2013 Charles Smith Chateau Smith Cabernet Sauvignon is rock solid, with classic violets, plum, licorice, earth and spring flower notes giving way to a medium-bodied, juicy, balanced feel on the palate. A barrel-aged blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and a splash of Petit Verdot, from yields in the range of 2-3 tons per acre, it's another terrific value that over delivers. I'd drink it over the coming year or two, but I see no reason it won't hold longer.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of sugared plums, herbs and black currants lead to black- and blue-fruit flavors that are surprisingly soft. One misses the tannins Cabernet is known for but it makes up for it elsewhere.

Wine SpectatorSupple and expressive, with pretty, mocha-accented black cherry and olive flavors, lingering gently. Drink now through 2018. 35,000 cases made.
