TASTING NOTES

What a surprise! Arguably more potent than ’03 and ’02. Good attack. Unmistakable Cabernet Sauvignon’s black currant signature. However, initial excitement is undermined by short mid-palate and quickly fading finish. The age has left more of the Chevalier’s Spirit here than the Chevalier himself.
