Light on the nose with hints of leather, rose petals and violets. In the mouth there's a lot of tobacco, leather and smokey cedar flavors. A very nice cherry/cassis fruit base leading to a very nice long finish on cocoa and chocolate with a soft minerality underneath.

Lovely - lots of sweet fruit, enough tanin to balance, medium-length. An indulgence, but also a pleasure.

...deep garnet/plum evolved color. Quintessentially elegant with a complex nose of black fruits coconut smoke and pain grille this medium-bodied wine exhibits sweet fruit on the attack substantial complexity and a lush velvety-textured finish... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Medium red color. More deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry redcurrant mocha cocoa powder and tobacco leaf; very cabernet franc in its smoke and earth notes and less floral than the 97. Smooth entry then a bit more dense than the 97 but rather disjointed today. Finishes with dusty tannins and sneaky persistence of flavor. 88-91 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A very fine 96 but what else would you expect from Cheval-Blanc? Medium- to full-bodied with a good deep-ruby color this has aromas of freshly crushed blackberry fine tannins and a silky fresh aftertaste... Wine Spectator.

Medium red color. More deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry, redcurrant, mocha, cocoa powder and tobacco leaf; very cabernet franc in its smoke and earth notes, and less floral than the '97. Smooth entry, then a bit more dense than the '97 but ra... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Cheval Blanc 750ml
