From the Critics:

  • "A top-notch success, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2006 Smith-Haut-Lafitte offers aromas of smoky, juicy black currants, graphite, earth, truffles, and forest floor. Full-bodied with superb purity, noticeable but sweet tannins, this round, generous, long wine should drink nicely for 15-20+ years." -93 points Robert Parker

    "Gorgeous aromas of dark chocolate, cappuccino and berries lead to a full body, with luscious fruit and round tannins. Long and voluptuous for the vintage. Impressive. Best after 2014. 10,000 cases made." -92 Points - Wine Spectator

    "Full red-ruby. Expressive nose offers plum, black raspberry, tobacco, mocha, truffle, licorice and herbs. Suave, fine-grained and vibrant; generous and plush yet light on its feet. Finishes very long and classy, with sweet tannins, terrific energy and palate-coating persistence and perfume. Not as fat or full as the 2005, but just a step behind that wine." -92 Points- Stephen Tanzer- International Wine Cellar

    "With its prominent new wood, here is a wine that goes for spice, caramel and high toast flavors. It has great power, a wine that is currently all structure, leaving the fruit to gain in richness at a later stage." -90 points Wine Enthusiast

    WINE:
    "This wine is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. The vineyards are an average age of 38 years old. The grapes are harvested manually, with punching downs in traditional wood casks around 28-30 degrees Celsius. The wine ages for 18 months in 80% New French oak (made onsite) on the lees with one racking." -Winery
