Very closed right out of the bottle. Opened up a bit with time in a decanter while we tasted other wines ('96 Mouton and "89 Lafite.) Still disappointed a bit. Not enough flavor. It was like it was right on the edge - tempting but not fulfilling. Could have probably used more time in bottle; certainly could have used more time in decanter. Wish I had another to try about five years down the road.

This young Bordeaux shows intense aromas of wet earth, stone and berries. It's full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Very well made indeed, and much better than when tasted from barrel. Best after 2008. 9,165 cases ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1998 Smith-Haut-Lafitte 750ml
