Lot #43. Smith Haut Lafitte 2019

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 99 TWI.
"The 2019 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge comes from terroir composed of 60% gravel and 40% clay and is a blend of around 2/3 Cabernet Sauvignon and 1/3 Merlot with a splash of Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs considerable swirling to unlock notes of blackcurrant preserves, stewed plums, and juicy blackberries, with hints of candied violets, licorice, espresso, and tapenade, plus wafts of crushed rocks and wood smoke. Full-bodied, rich, and opulent in the mouth, it has very firm, super-ripe, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness to support the voluptuous, mineral-accented fruit, finishing very long and achingly perfumed." Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, TheWineIndependent.com, Apr 2022
Provenance: The Cascade Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $600
