750 ML   France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan

  Wine Advocate #158
           Apr 2005
       Robert M. Parker, Jr.           90       Drink: 2008- 2019

This successful wine exhibits notes of ripe black currants and smoked herbs. With deep, concentrated, attractive flavors, medium body, sweet tannin, and decent acidity, this is an impressive, classic Graves that should drink well young yet age nicely for up to two decades. It is more structured and linear than the plump 2003, but both are top-notch efforts. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2019.

An estate run impeccably by the Cathiard family, Smith-Haut-Lafitte has been one of the bright shining stars of Bordeaux since the mid-1990s.
