Smith & Son Wine Co


7th Son McLaren Vale Grenache Shiraz 2012

Purchased at the winery about 4 or 5 years ago, we thought this was excellent - much better than some of the ratings we saw in the trade magazines. Intense but balanced, complex fruit with hints of eucalyptus that for me is a great trademark of wines from this region in Australia, this was really terrific. — 4 days ago

Chateau Smith

Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

This wine reminds us of the quality and value of Washington State wines. It has an very good balance of fruit and texture. For the price it is hard to beat. It went well with the prime New York steak we paired it with. Wishing I’d bought more at Gelson’s. — 3 days ago

Smith Madrone

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Structured stuff. Lots of plum and cassis and boysenberry. Smell a little like green bell pepper and some cigars (cliche I know). Tannin smooths out with some open time. Also smells a bit hot. — 4 days ago


Alchemy Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

First time for this producer and very rarely have wines from the Orange District. Lovely aromatics, not really Cab Sauv but then I noticed the blend was 45% Cab Sauvignon; 45% Cab Franc; 10% Shiraz. A lovely Aussie right bank rendition you might say. Red and black fruits with plum and tobacco notes. The palate is sweetish and luscious texture with supple tannins. This wine proves that Orange Is an accredited Australian wine district for both Reds and Whites taking in Hilltops. Have experienced the excellent whites from here and must seek out more Reds based on the quality of this wine. — 11 days ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

17/20 (92/100) Много животных тонов, ноты сажи, спелых чёрных ягод,кедра и шоколада. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, бархатистыми по текстуре танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе. Мощно, хотя бретт немного мешает. — 10 days ago

Royal City Washington Syrah 2015

The battle of the Syrah versus the Shiraz. This time Shiraz from Torbreck won (the Factor). The Royal City Syrah was just as complex but the bold fruit and its sweetness were hiding some of the underlying earthy and mineral notes. Almost a bit out of balance. Still really good and made us fight over the last drop with our friends. — 6 days ago
