Named the 'Velvet Devil' due to this wines soft, smooth velvety texture. It is made from Merlot grapes, and has flavours of blackberries, plum and some sweet spices.

Winemaking is the new rock and roll. Or in Charles Smith’s case it is the new Danish Thrash Metal. Charles spent a decade in Europe managing various bands you’ll never have heard of (unless you mis-spent your youth in disused warehouses near the Copenhagen ring road) before seeing the light and heading to Washington State to plant vines.

Fast-forward a dozen vintages or so and Charles still has the hair, the t-shirts and the attitude of his music days but has replaced the guitar pick for a corkscrew and the Jack Daniels for some supremely elegant Riesling and Syrah.

Will be an ideal match with lamb shanks, barbecued meats or charcuterie.

87 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2013 Vintage)

Slightly turgid crimson, sweet and racy and brick-like fruit. Not bad and much more fun than most American wines at this price.
Jancis Robinson, www.jancisrobinson.com

The Velvet Devil attacks from the start, a ball of intense blackberry at its core, silky, supple and seductive. Lock horns with this little devil if you dare.
Zeren Wilson, Flavour Magazine
