Charles started Charles Smith Wines in 2006. The brand was themed as “The Modernist Project,” which focuses on the way people generally consume wine today: immediately. With fruit from a single vineyard in Ancient Lakes, this shows Riesling’s fun and funky side. There’s a whole lot of fruity, floral aromas – a medley of sweet stone fruit, lemon, lime and fruit drops. To taste, it’s off-dry, with juicy citrus and sweeter, fleshy tropical and stone fruit notes.
