The May Virtual Tasting will be Charles Smith’s Boom Boom! Syrah 2007. The tasting will take place on Thursday May 28th.

Charles Smith needs no introduction. Smith is as iconic as his black and white labels with his mane of curly hair. Smith serves as winemaker for K Vintners (the “artisan winery”), Magnificent Wine Company (“wine for the people”), and Charles Smith Wines his “Modernist project.” The 2007 Boom Boom! Syrah clocks in at $15 and is fairly widely available. For a list of stores that will ship this wine to you check out WineZap.

As usual, I will be opening the bottle about 7pm and posting comments throughout the evening. Please join us in trying this wine and posting your notes. As always, I encourage you to pull a few friends together. If you can’t join on the 28th, feel free to send comments any time before or after. Links to previous virtual tastings are below. Also if you have suggestions for next month’s wine, send ‘em along.
