    Super Substance is yet another project from Charles Smith (K Vintners, Sixto, Kung Fu Girl) the famed winemaker and larger than life personality from the state of Washington. Somehow the man and his trusty crew have found time to make yet another fantastic set of wines that deliver massive quality, with pure deliciousness in mind for the consumer. As K Vintners has done for so many years with Syrah and other Rhone Varietals out of Washington State so does Super Substance for Bordeaux Varietals—it puts the best possible wine in to bottle for extremely reasonable prices, in slick packaging, from some of the best vineyards that the state has to offer. We highly suggest that at these special prices you check these wines out.<br> The “Stoneridge” Cabernet Sauvignon is full of power and concentration while retaining softness and approachability. Aromatics of Amaro, hoisin sauce, star anise and espresso bean dominate the savory and fun nose. Seamless is the word I used in my notes for this wine. There is just great integration and fast switches from piece to piece of this wine. Think chocolate covered blueberries, Black Cherry pie filling, wild berries picked freshly from the vine and a whole lot of mulled spice, this is warm, inviting Cab. Some front pinning tannins play nice with black tea finishing flavors and just to keep things interesting and continue down the path of ripeness, a hallmark trait for all of Charles’s wines, something akin to a black/white cookie tone appears on the fun and energetic finish.

    This is a powerful Washington Cabernet that has bold fruit flavors and nice balance. Cinnamon spice, plumy jam and ripe red cherry notes flourish in the glass. The palette is dry, full of plump fruit and subtle minerality and finishes with fine tannin. If you like big, bold Cabs, this is for you!

    This is rich and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberries, licorice, and cherry notes give way to a full bodied structured wine. Soft tannin and juicy acid are well balanced and integrated. A flinty dry finish helps polish off this outstanding wine.
