History
Boom Boom! exploded on the wine industry in 2007, and this spicy Syrah has been one of Washington State's signature wines ever since. It's a tribute to Charles' first love lost—a woman nicknamed “Boom Boom” O'Brien—and it's one of the biggest and boldest Syrahs of all time. It's not surprising that wine drinkers everywhere have fallen in love with it.
Regional Information
wine grapes sourced from the Washington State winegrowing region using sustainable wine practices. This appellation is the second-largest premium wine producer in the United States and continues to grow in popularity thanks to its unique characteristics.

Vinification Details
Charles' knowledge of and respect for old world winemaking techniques coupled with his commitment to how people actually drink wine are what make his wines so unique. His reds undergo long macerations of 30 days or more on the skins, with no racking after malolactic fermentation is finished. “They go to the barrel ‘dirty,' on their gross lees,” he says.

Free to review from Ocado

I know nothing about wine & happily order the ‘house red’ when out but even I could tell this is a good wine. It’s smooth & darkly fruity. The price is too high for me but I’d buy it for a special occasion if it was on ‘special’.

Below Par

As a fan of Charles Smith wines, I found this wine hugely disappointing with an unusual taste that I wouldn't associate with Syrah wines, and even stranger after-taste. Not recommended unless you want something very different!

Smooth red, rich berry fruit

I received this bottle free to review for Ocado. An enjoyable wine, wonderful aromas and flavours, this red was delicious with a slow cooked, pepper crust beef roast. Rich berries on the palate... Plum, damson, blackberry and a smooth finish. Let it breath well before drinking. Gave it 4 stars as felt a bit pricey at normal cost of £18.99.

Not bad

I’m reviewing this as I had a free bottle from Ocado. I’m usually a Merlot drinker but I enjoyed this for a change. Would buy again for sure.

Unpleasant after taste

‘I’m reviewing this product because I got a free sample from Ocado. This wine is really heavy, I am used to medium bodied wine and this one is more like full bodied wine. Would be suited with game or strong cheeses. I found the flavor to be affected by a bitter after taste, not very nice to my palate. There are out there some better wine at much cheaper price.

Nice discovery

I’m reviewing this product because I got a free sample from Ocado. I’m not great at describing wine other than whether I like it or not, but this has a lovely powerful bouquet and tastes great. I haven’t really explored Syrah much before, but I’m becoming a convert. Will buy again.
