Tasting Notes

Black olive and berry aromas follow through to a full body, with lots of smoky oak and sweet fruit. Soft and very pretty. An outstanding second wine from Smith-Haut-Lafitte.

James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, February 2008

Second wine of Smith Haut-Lafitte. Early hints of undergrowth and leather - the most developed aromas of any wine tasted so far - but also sweet vanilla and very ripe plums. Then much darker and less aromatic on the palate. Firm and dry and less expressive in the mouth. Tannins are ripe and rounded. Date tasted 15 April 09.
