The 2012 Chateau Smith is a wine long and rich in the mouth. Aromas of black cherry, wet earth, anise and a touch of toasted herbs with flavors and a finish to match.
A great match for pappardelle with porcini and pistachios.
Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
"An outstanding bottle of wine, the 2012 Charles Smith Chateau Smith Cabernet Sauvignon (93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec) gives up big blueberry, spice, crushed flowers and violets in a seamless, sexy, yet fresh and delicious package. It too is a superb value and will have 5 to 7 years of longevity. "
