Château Smith Haut Lafitte Le Petit Haut Lafitte Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$44.99

Technically the 3rd wine of Smith Haut Lafitte, this is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon from younger vines with a tad less new oak. "Very engaging from the start, with a blast of boysenberry and blackberry fruit that grabs your attention, while notes of licorice snap, violet and black tea fill in the background. Open, pure and ready to drink now. Drink now through 2021." WS 91

Decanted for 2 hours but needed much more. Huge body, inky, staining glass and teeth, spice and tannin in full force. Could use some more cellar time or lots of decanting.

Very inky and tarry. Earthy nose and dark fruited palate with coffee grinds on the finish. Balanced.

The estate dates back to the Crusades, and Scottish navigator, George Smith, the owner in the 18th century. He was followed by M. Duffour-Dubergier, Mayor of Bordeaux, and then Louis Eschenauer, a famous wine shipper. In 1990, Daniel and Florence Cathiard now own the estate. Dark plum red with dark berry fruit aromas, herb and spice. On the palate complex black fruit flavors, cinnamon tea and cacao notes. Soft tannins, rich and full, lingering, mineral ending, perfect now.

Even better than advertised and at the point in its evolution that makes my palate dance

Really dark rich color. Just opened. Earthy, coffee and dark chocolate. Not a lot of fruit showing yet. This one can last a while longer I think.
