Winemaker Notes

Hold on tight and open your mouth to the launch of this explosive and captivating beauty. Grapefruit, fresh cut grass, lemongrass and flint start you on the journey of discovery followed by an outburst of fresh pine needles, mountain wildflowers and lime leaf. Crisp, focused, and very long. Enjoy the ride!

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 91
James Suckling

Very aromatic with glazed lemons, sliced pears, chamomile and spring honey. It’s medium-bodied and dry with tangy acidity and juicy citrus fruit in the middle. Flavorful with a stony minerality at the end. Drink now. Screw cap.

V 89

The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc SB is spicy and exotic, with shaved pineapple, sage and lemongrass wafting up from the glass. This is soft-textured with potent citrus-tinged orchard fruits riding over medium-bodied textures, with stimulating acids adding traction toward the close.

RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2021 Sb Sauvignon Blanc opens with classic aromas of citrus blossom, Meyer lemon and hints of savory herbs with a delightful notion of underripe peaches. Medium-bodied, clean and expressive, this delightful wine offers a balanced structure and ends with a fresh, lingering finish.

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. Wines of Substance illustrates Charles’ philosophy of producing exceptional wines to be enjoyed by everyone around the globe.

A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
