Château Cheval Blanc St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

$399

Berry, cherry and chocolate on the nose, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a spicy, cedary, dark chocolate aftertaste. Very silky and caressing. Grabs your attention. Muscular for Cheval. Overlooked by many Cheval fans... Wine Spectator

Very nice but didn't quite live up to the Cheval Blanc pedigree. Incredibly aromatic, and quite fine tannins with a precise finish and good acid. But this lacks fruit in the mid palate and ultimately didn't quite get there for me. Maybe better a few years ago?
