Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Grand Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Pop and pour. A beautiful dark ruby red color. On the nose: very aeromatic with dark fruit, herbaceous, some funky earth, leather and touch of mint. Taste: dark cherry, chocolate espresso, spice, tar, little bit of green veggie, and a medium dry finish with a slight still there tannic kick. — 2 days ago

Late Bloomer Grenache 2017

In magnum. Still one of my faves from Russ and always fun to tell the story (wine club gets to submit grade school photo and if you win, you get to be on every bottle for the vintage). lol. 100% Grenache from Paso. 15.8% ABV so drink responsibly. — 3 months ago

Incredible competition.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Grand Cru Classé de Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Aromas of mint, dried herbs with cassis and black plum. A medium weight palate which is dusty, resolved, balanced and beautiful. Finishes with slinky, silky tannins. Mature Bordeaux from a good district and producer is hard to beat. Happy Bastille Day - we drank this on Sunday. — 6 days ago

Thanks Peter

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Chardonnay 2019

Golden in color, hints of green apple, lemon zest, orange peel and a nice acidity. Full bodied but not overly oaked. The finish lingers. Drinking nicely. — a month ago

Nuts & Bolts California Syrah 2022

Needed about 3 hours of air to open a bit. Huge dark fruit, cocoa powder, pepper, baking spice, blackberry jam, a touch of herb jam, maybe jalapeño, but a lot of fruit and chocolate. Lovely. — 19 days ago

Smith Madrone

Spring Mountain District Riesling 2017

Helping a chef with a Smith Madrone tasting. This is a very nice Riesling that exhibits apples, peach and some bartlett pear. Just a bit of acidity and you will get a fair hint of oil on the nose, not in a bad way. We gave it a good 1 hr decant and didn't serve it too chilled. Light acidity and a full mouthfeel. 7 year bottle aged and drinking nicely. — a month ago
