  • The wines of Charles Smith's Modernist Project offer up oddly contrasting, black & white credos: "To create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity in regards to variety" and "It's just booze. Drink it." With The Velvet Devil, Smith somehow manages to incorporate layered complexities, waves of flavors within his trademark sybaritic, full-throttle approach. Hell, yeah!
