2002 Smith Haut Lafitte

RP 90 / WS 90

Wine Advocate 90 points

This successful wine exhibits notes of ripe black currants and smoked herbs. With deep, concentrated, attractive flavors, medium body, sweet tannin, and decent acidity, this is an impressive, classic Graves that should drink well young yet age nicely for up to two decades. It is more structured and linear than the plump 2003, but both are top-notch efforts. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2019. (Apr 2005)
