The original thought was to be a one wine brand, with a single minded vision to produce the best value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon in America. How do you go about this? Traditional winemaking. Natural fermentations. Barrel-aging. Plus, bottling unfiltered and unfined. In essence, making the wines in small batch winemaking integrity, but doing so on a larger scale. The wine is black. The label definitively says, "This is Cabernet Sauvignon." With the CS, you know who made this wine: Charles Smith. There is also the single vineyard, single expression, Bordeaux varietals (ex: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) produced in very limited quantities. Let's not to forget, the single vineyard Loire-style Substance Sauvignon Blanc. This is the newest chapter in the history books of Charles Smith and his wines.

"A dusty roadside blackberry aroma is joined by traces of mint and the good kind of cotton candy you can only get at the circus. A bowl of boysenberries flecked with vanilla cream and a bit of lemon are the flavors backed by tannins so brawny, you'd swear you were sipping Irish breakfast tea." The Wine Enthusiast, 91 Points

"Opening to classic Cabernet notes on the nose, with a fresh frame of blackberry, dark cherry and dusty plum, the 2021 Cs Cabernet Sauvignon is juicy and floral with hints of savory herbs and brown baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it is firm, focused and fresh on the palate, with elegance, focus, grace and a balanced structures. This is quite impressive for the price and number of bottles produced. Over 2.4 million bottles were made after the wine rested for about a year on the lees, and it boasts a soft shine from aging in 25% new French oak. Bravo!" The Wine Advocate, 90 Points
