A Brett bomb. "Old boots" and forest underbelly masking dark fruit and graphite. Aged beyond its years. Very drinkable if you are one who enjoys the decadence and immorality of opium dens, brothels and large scale government conspiracy theories that are born in such places.

Served as a blind wine in an all CaliCab dinner. Disclaimer: I was under the impression it was a Cali so I may have gone into this wrong. :)Medium dark color. Good balance and mouthfeel. I initially spot either Petite Verdot and Cab Franc so I knew it was a blend. A bit subdued and reserved, this was pretty and elegant. I did miss my fruit though. There were some dark red cherries and plums. A little neutral oak was coming through as well. Reminded me of a few Phelps Insignias I have had. Not the best guy to judge Bordeaux so the egg on my face took a while to dry when I took a way off base guess. All in all a very nice wine indeed.

"A sensational effort and one of the stars of the vintage, Smith-Haut-Lafitte's 2004 possesses an inky/blue/purple-tinged color as well as a sumptuous nose of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blueberries, and blackberries. Surprisingly

Exotic, smoky, spicy, very alluring wine. Rather open, not fabulously concentrated, but there is a good presence created by a nice grip and freshness of fruit. Rather gentle. Certainly appealing, which again should make for very good drinking in the future.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Very dark crimson, full and opulent but held in check by Graves freshness.Very successful. Both modernists and traditionalists should like it."<br/>(Jancis Robinson - jancisrobinson.com - 16-Oct-2006)
