Barnyard on the nose and starts out that way, its medium bodied and has notes of black cherry. There's some very well integrated tannins and its got a nice finish with some secondary aromas: saddle leather and cigar box.
Smack-your-lips good! We enjoyed it so much we decided to skip the appetizers and just savor the wine. Not too heavy, not too light. Just a great balance of flavors ranging from fruit to cocoa. Want more!
External Reviews for Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafitte Cru Classe Graves Graves
One can t say enough about this winery, which may still fly under the radar of most consumers. The fully mature 2000 displays gorgeous aromas of camphor, lead pencil shavings, unsmoked tobacco, plums, and black currants. With full body, a velvety texture, and beautiful weight, richness, and length, this superb wine should evolve, possibly improve for another 15 years. It s a beauty!
A solid young red with big velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit tobacco and chocolate character. Long fresh finish. One of the best Prieuri-Lichine in a long long time. Best after 2007. 18 000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.

(under the direction of microbullage-meister Stephane Derenoncourt, this has been racked only once) Medium ruby. Ripe aromas of red berries, coffee, spicy oak and game, with a suggestion of almost exotic merlot. Spicy red fruit, coffee and oak flavor... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
