Tasting Notes:
rated: October 1, 2003 , Robert Parker
"91-93 points: Another terrific effort from the Cathiards, Smith-Haut-Lafitte's 2002 is not far off the pace of their brilliant 2000. From yields of a mere 32 hectoliters per hectar (60% of the crop made it into the final blend), this inky purple-colored 2002 offers wonderfully complex aromas of lead pencil shavings, black currants, and a hint of chocolate. Thick, rich and medium to full bodied, with a great mid-palate, texture and purity, and a long, concentrated finish with moderately high but sweet tannin, this is a brilliant success for the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2023." Best 2008-2023

90 points "Superpretty red with licorice, plums and Indian spices that follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Very pretty indeed. All in finesse. Best after 2007." Best 2007-
