“Focusing on higher elevation sites and old, abandoned Chardonnay vines, these Sixto releases are made by the team at Charles Smith/K Vintners. They’re the finest expressions of Chardonnay coming out of Washington today.” – The Wine Advocate

In the wine community in Washington state, the larger than life character of Charles Smith is immediately recognizable. This iconoclast and music industry veteran with a fulminating, curly head of hair has created more successful wine brands than we can count, including  Kung Fu Girl Riesling, Eve Chardonnay, Boom Boom Syrah, Velvet Devil Merlot and Chateau Smith Cabernet Sauvignon, all of which were recently sold to Constellation. 

Smith has narrowed his focus to his own K Vintners portfolio, which includes Sixto, a project he created with master winemaker Brennon Leighton to showcase forgotten, old-vine Chardonnay sites in the Yakima Valley. Recently we tasted their 2014 Roza Hills Chardonnay and were floored by its richness balanced with vivacity. We had to have it, and pass it on to you in our Pathfinder Club.
