Top 100 Wine of 2019, Smart Buy, 91pts Wine Spectator

Jeb Dunnuck having trouble finding enough positive adjectives to gush about it. It's a buy-by-the-case value, winelovers. Like Charles Smith, we kinda love this (Wines of) Substance Cabernet Sauvignon. It's seriously drinkable. You'll want it with Tuesday night spaghetti and meatballs, Saturday night pan-seared rib-eyes with herbed, scalloped potatoes, and everything in between. It's going to make you want to be a woman or a man of Substance. It's equal-opportunity delicious.

Jeb Dunnuck: "The base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant, and as Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a value that’s hard to beat! Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate. It’s the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3-4 times the price." Apr 2019

Wine Spectator:  "Designated Top 100 Wine of 2019 and Smart Buy.  "Precise and vibrantly structured, with black cherry, espresso and spice flavors that take on richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024." Aug 2019

Winery: "Classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Currant, blackberry, cigar box with touches of chocolate, cedar and pencil lead. Full flavored & just so damn good. I should raise the price. The original thought behind Wines of Substance was to be a one wine brand, with a single minded vision to produce the best value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon in America. “How do you go about this? Traditional winemaking. Natural fermentations. Barrel-aging. Plus, bottling unfiltered and unfined. In essence, making the wines in small batch winemaking integrity, but doing so on a larger scale.” The wine is black. The label definitively says, "This is Cabernet Sauvignon." "And also, with the CS, you know who made this wine: Charles Smith."
