Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte 'Les Hauts de Smith 2016

Regular price $39.99

Les Hauts de Smith 2016 is a very dark, deep red. Expressive, with beautiful notes of raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant, the nose becomes more complex upon aeration, revealing mild spices and toasted aromas. On the palate the 2016 is open and dense with lovely fullness. Round and elegant, it offers delightful tannins and smoothness. The long, fresh finish offers complex aromas of raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, cinnamon and star anise while also evoking the estate’s terroir with flinty notes. Balanced, fresh and smooth, Les Hauts de Smith 2016 is a true delight.

- Winery Notes

92 pts Vinous

The 2016 Les Hauts de Smith is pliant, racy and inviting. This Merlot-based wine offers tons of early accessibility and sheer appeal. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry, mint, rose petal and dried flowers add grace throughout. A range of striking floral/savory Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics add complexity, while the Merlot is felt in the wine's fleshiness.
