Wine Critic Reviews:

Rich and decadent, an outstanding second wine. Earthy, with tobacco, cherry and bark aromas. Full- to medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium aftertaste...

Sokolin 1995 Carruades De Lafite Tasting Notes:

You've never met such a generous wine before. The 1995 Carruades de Lafite doesn't hold back on its virtues and doesn't prefer the mystery. It will show its true colors immediately when you open the bottle, and it will give you its best, its all. Before you know it, this Pauillac will become your all-time favorite and no other wine could even compete with it.

The unparalleled beauty of this blend lies in an impeccable ratio of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. Thanks to the prevailing Sauvignon variety, the color of this beauty is deep and enchanting, announcing the full-bodied and intense red in the right way.

You know what to expect. The well-known bouquet of mellow plums and black cherries with tobacco and leather in the background, giving the aromatics fantastic layers you'll smell as the wine keeps opening up in your glass.

After you take the first sip, you'll feel privileged to have come into possession of this fine bottle. The 1995 Carruades de Lafite is nothing but an elegant, well-made Bordeaux with a strong personality and excellent texture that makes it so pleasant and easily drinkable. After you dive into the deep currant and dark berry flavors, a long-lasting, spicy finish will stick with you to make sure you never forget about this fabulous red. Drink now, don't let it lose the structure and the charm of a classy Bordeaux it still is.
