Charles Smith is like the Sammy Hagar of wine, and not just because his curly locks are reminiscent of the one-time Van Halen front man. Like Hagar, Smith is more memorable for his contributions to the world of alcoholic libations than he is his 11 years managing rock bands in Scandinavia. (For those of you not in the know, Hagar may be better remembered for Cabo Wabo premium Tequila than for anything he did with Van Halen.) The wines under his K Vintners label are always critically acclaimed, and because of their small production, they sell out EXTREMELY FAST. There were only 217 cases of Ovide produced from the Cabernet and Syrah grown at the biodynamically farmed En Cerise vineyards in Walla Walla Valley. Named for Charles' father, Robert Ovide, the 2009 is earthy, with dried lavender, rosemary and olive aromas and flavors to complement the gamey, peppery, black fruited palate. Fascinating and full.
