Charles & Charles is a collaboration between two esteemed winemakers, Charles Bieler and Charles Smith. Charles Bieler was making beautiful rosés in Provence in Southern France, when he became inspired by the potential of Washington State, where Charles Smith was already making iconic wines in Walla Walla. In 2008, they came together with the dream of producing world class rosé in the Columbia Valley. The operation grew to include a number of wines, including this cabernet sauvignon and syrah blend. Since 2012, all of their syrah has been whole cluster fermented in stainless steel with wild yeast, while their cabernet is done similarly, after destemming. This cuvée is comprised of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% syrah, blended together after fermentation to create a beautifully balanced and smooth wine with bold, dark fruit and elegant tannin.
