A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 Les Hauts de Smith is pliant, racy and inviting. This Merlot-based wine offers tons of early accessibility and sheer appeal. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry, mint, rose petal and dried flowers add grace throughout. A range of striking floral/savoury Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics add complexity, while the Merlot is felt in the wine's fleshiness.
