Wine Advocate 90 points - This somewhat charming, lightweight Cheval Blanc is fully mature but elegant, with sweet red and black currant fruit intermixed with mineral, licorice, and a hint of herbs. Spicy, medium-bodied, and very pleasant, this wine?s harmony gives it considerable appeal. Drink up. Last tasted, 11/02.

I had this wine several times from the barrel, and also twice in comparative tastings prior to bottling. I never gave it more than average marks. Tasted numerous times after bottling, it is a different wine, relatively rich, spicy, plummy, with soft, silky, layered flavors, good concentration, and moderate tannin.
