Growing up just outside of Sacramento, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Charles Smith began craving worldly travel at a young age due to his Welsh mother and French father. As soon as he had the chance, Charles decided to move to Denmark (for a "hot piece of a** i.e. a lady friend he met in the states). While in Scandinavia, Charles spent the next nine years managing rock bands and concert tours throughout Europe, including the famed Danish duo, The Ravonettes. Wining and dining while on the road became a catalyst for his passion of wine, which ultimately triggered the career he has today. In 1999, he moved back to the United States, specifically to the Pacific Northwest, opening a wine shop on Bainbridge Island, just across the Puget Sound from downtown Seattle. On a road trip in late 1999, he passed through the small town of Walla Walla and met a young Frenchman and winemaker. The two men discovered their common passion for great Syrah and Charles was eventually convinced to move to Walla Walla and make his own juice. In 2001, Charles released 330 cases of his first wine, the 1999 K Syrah. The Walla Walla Valley was now his home. After a devastating freeze in 2004, Charles brought to life a label he had once in a dream: House Wine. Low and behold, the label concept had never been created or trademarked, so Charles launched the legendary brand before selling it to Precept Brands in 2006. That same year, Charles started a second brand, Charles Smith Wines. The brand was themed as "The Modernist Project, which focuses on the way people generally consume wine today: immediately. The intent was (and still is) to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with true typicity of both the varietal and the vineyard. A self taught winemaker, Charles is a true artisan and a pioneer in the wine world. In 2008, K Vintners was recognized by Wine & Spirits magazine as one of the "Best New Wineries of the Last Ten Years, and as "Winery of the Year in their annual buying guide. In 2009 Food & Wine magazine awarded Charles "Winemaker of the Year and in 2010 Seattle Magazine recognized Charles as their "Winemaker of the Year.

TASTING NOTES: A surprising combination of precision and indulgence, the Ros Rserve is inspired by the blend of Brut Rserve, to which 5 to 6% of red wines have been added from the crown jewel of the Aube region, Les Riceys, a terroir chosen for the great delicacy of its iconic Pinots Noirs.

APPEARANCE A sophisticated powdery pink hue with luminous glints of wild rose. Delicate, vivacious bubbles are the result of an ageing period of over 36 months.

AROMAS A base of 20% of reserve wines, white and red, gives this ros blend a subtle, yet complex nose. The first fragrances are redolent of traditional, home made strawberry jam mixed with the fruitiness of vineyard peaches. Then follows the warm luscious notes of gingerbread with a touch of cinnamon.

FLAVOURS The deep tantalizing and powerful mouthfeel the result of ageing in two thousand year old cellars offers a burst of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry nestled in velvety whipped cream.
