Graphite, wet stone. Floral with Candied cherry acetone. Fig flavors tannin still provide structure. Finish is long — 4 days ago
Drinking this in 2022, so it's 7 years old now and drinking beautifully. Cranberry, cherry and baking spice on the nose, with red fruit and some damp forest floor on the palate and balanced minerality/acidity. Love these wines and the winemakers, so enjoying a bottle is a pleasure on many levels. — a month ago
The 2012 Smith Haut Lafitte has an intense, well-defined and quite complex bouquet with blackberry, briary and cigar humidor scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, cohesive and poised with quite a firm grip towards the finish. This is another classy Pessac-Léognan and a wonderful example from Pessac-Léognan that might well be leading the pack at this stage. Bon vin. Tasted twice at Bordeaux Index's Ten Year-On tasting and blind at the Southwold Ten-Year On tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2022)

Delicious well structured behemoth Cab. Best wine of the night. — a month ago
This is an Interesting Cabernet from Spring Mountain.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with nice complexity.
Showing black fruits with cedar, earth, vanilla, spices, vegetables, bitter herbs, green pepper, tobacco leaf, coffee and black pepper.
This Napa Cabernet is still young, and shows lots of earthy notes. Feels like a left bank Bordeaux. The Cabernet franc is very dominant right now.
A good sipping wine with good structure and a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
Nicely balanced and good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.
A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Aged for 21 months in French Oak barrels.
14.3% alcohol by volume.
$60. — 2 months ago
