Very good reviews on Cellar Tracker

95 points Wine & Spirits
No tasting note given. (4/2002)

93 points James Suckling
Now shows plums, earth and light chocolate character, and lovely balance. It’s full-to-medium-bodied with fine tannins and a very pretty finish. Just right now. Enjoy. (7/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator
Decadent aromas here, with meat, ripe fruit and spices. Full-bodied, with round, soft tannins and lots of spicy, earthy and leafy flavors. Long and rich. Give it a little more bottle age. This has always been excellent. —'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010. (JS, Web only-2009)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A beautiful wine of symmetry, finesse, and elegance, this deep ruby/purple-colored offering reveals classic aromas of black currants, new wood, and scorched earth. This pure, medium-bodied, restrained, measured, graceful 1998 offers impressive overall symmetry as well as well-integrated tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2018. (RP) (4/2001)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Medium red. Complex aromas of currant, tobacco and smoke. Dry-edged in the manner of the vintage, but vinous and precise, with subdued sweetness and solid structure. Finishes with firm but rather sweet tannins and very good length. A classic, elegant style of Smith Haut Lafitte. (6/2001)
