Winemaker Notes

Pencil lead, forest floor and cooked meats begin this journey. It takes an important place in the history of Walla Walla wine, "The Rocks." Structured, noble and complex. Another one of a kind.

Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah.

The 2015 Cabernet / Syrah Ovide Jack's Vineyard is named after Charles’ father and comes from a site next to River Rock, both in the Rocks region of the Walla Walla Valley. A blend of 70/30 Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, its deep ruby color is followed by a terrific bouquet of blackcurrants, tapenade, dried earth and dried herbs. It's rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, with beautiful depth.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah, the 2015 Ovide Jack's Vineyard is wild and characterful, bursting with aromas of grilled meats, licorice, ripe blackberries, espresso roast and black olives. Rich and supple, it's full-bodied, velvety and layered, concluding with a savory finish. It doesn't boast quite the length or intensity of the portfolio's true high points, but it's nicely balanced and undeniably flavorful.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Broad-shouldered and densely built, buoyed by expressive blueberry, bacon fat and crushed stone flavors that finish with refined tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2020 through 2025.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Smelling this wine, there is no question it comes from the Rocks District. A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah, aromas of green and black olive, moist earth, ash and mineral are followed by soft, velvety, elegantly styled fruit flavors. It's a very pretty wine, with peat and smoke notes on the finish.

K Vintners, Washington
K Vintners Charles Smith Winery Image

Located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla Washington, K Vintners opened its doors to the public on December 3rd, 2001. The property at 820 Mill Creek Road where the winery sits was homesteaded in 1853 with the adjacent farmhouse built in 1872. The winery grounds with Titus Creek flowing through the lawn and the old pioneer planted trees, is a little slice of heartland Americana. The Winemaker: He loves to drink wine! Charles Smith, proprietor and winemaker, comes to Walla Walla after 11 years in Scandanavia. Originally from northern California, he has been involved with wine personally and professionally his whole life. And did we forget to mention... he loves to drink wine! The Vineyards: K Vintners is producing wines from 2 distinctive viticultural zones: Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla Valley. Each of these areas are unique and awesome for Syrah and the Field Blends produced. In April '02 two seperate blocks of vineyards were planted to Syrah adjacent to the winery in the rocky dry creek beds that run through K Vintners property.

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
