I had a chance to meet Charles Smith late last year, what a crazy dude! I have tried some great wines and some so-so wines, this one is a very good one. Off-dry and begging for something spicy to eat it with. Screw cap is a nice touch and keeps things casual.
I sampled this Schug at our San Francisco headquarters before we brought this in and enjoyed it. It's a likeable wine and takes the middle road as far as chardonnay goes. Cirtrusy and tart in all the right places. This is not an oak bomb or fruit bomb if that's what you're are searching for.
I finally had chance to try this wine after many years of eyeing it on the site. I was pleased to find that it did indeed live up the reviews (which isn't always so). It had the depth and complexity that one rightly expects from a wine at this price point. It's an extremely good Merlot.
Year after year this is my "go to" cab. When friends ask me to pick out a wine for them, I suggest the Phoenix. It has typical Australian suppleness and is sufficiently complex to be interesting all on its own. It is great complement to food.
I don't think I've tried a better Sauvignon Blanc for the money this year. I picked up two bottles and opened one this weekend. Light grapefruit, guava and lemon flavors and aromas are well-integrated with pitch-perfect acidity.
