2018 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge

Great Bordeaux gift!
2018 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge...$159.99

Ripe and seductive, with a caressing wave of cassis, plum puree and blackberry compote flavors that hold sway throughout, but not without support from enticing savory, licorice, warm loam and mineral accents along the way. Cashmere finish lets everything sail on and on. Gorgeous. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2024 through 2040.
