There's nobody in the wine world quite like Charles Smith. The former manager of the rock band Raveonettes, turned eclectic winemaker, turned mainstream winemaker...the many acts of Charles Smith include one of our all-time favorites, the Sixto Uncovered Chardonnay. Smith knows a thing or two about making world class wine, as his K Powerline Estate was ranked as Wine Spectator's #2 Wine of the Year (2017). Sixto comes from old-vine Chardonnay at higher elevations and cool-climate vineyards throughout Washington state. This wine is otherworldly! Apricots, apples, and wildflowers mingle to create this compelling beauty. Sit down and take your time to savor the incredible structure, with a long and lingering presence of toasted almonds and apple blossom. This is a WOW bottle for $29.99!
"What a pretty nose. Lemon peel, fresh white flowers, lavender, crushed sage and wet stone. Medium-to full-bodied with carrying acidity. Extremely articulate and graceful on the palate with bright citrus and a dried-floral note. Impressive depth and length. Salty and tangy on the finish with vibrancy. Drink or hold."
