1995 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (nicked label)

SKU #1074199 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine is already showing exceptionally well, even though it is not close to its plateau of maturity. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by scents of roasted herbs intermixed with sweet black currant fruit, truffles, vanillin, and minerals. Lush, with ripe cassis fruit on the attack, outstanding balance, medium body, and layers of intensity, this is an elegant, graceful, smoothly textured, beautifully made Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018. Inner quote mark (2/1998)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very good deep red. Warm, inviting aromas of plums, hot bricks, leather and spice. Lush and expansive in the mouth, with smoke and plum flavors. Subtle flavor really expands on the finish. Tannins are quite suave. A lovely drink. Inner quote mark (6/1998)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of blackberries, with hints of cedar and fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied, with silky, firm tannins and a medium finish. Needs time still.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. (Web-2007) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Lush, with ripe cassis fruit on the attack, outstanding balance, medium body, and layers of intensity, this is an elegant, graceful, smoothly textured, beautifully made Bordeaux. A strong Cabernet vintage and this property is making great wines thanks to the Cathiards.
