Cheval Tuburle

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Delicious plummy fruit. Soft and supple and silly in the mouth. Plums, iron, damson. Very opulent but still a little contained. All the 2000’s need a bit more time to really shine. — 15 days ago

Cheval des Andes

Mendoza Malbec Blend 2005

Popped and poured. The 2005 Cheval des Andes pours a deep opaque garnet/purple. Currently throwing some slight sediment. On the nose, the wine is vinous. Lovely black and blue fruits, teriyaki, balsamic, purple flowers, leather, and baking spices. The same on the palate. In total balance. The finish is long, dry with integrated tannins and good acid still. Long. This is really in a gorgeous spot right now. My only bottle of this and so happy I enjoyed it when I did. Enjoy now or over the next 5-10. No decant necessary. — 3 months ago

Château Cheval Noir

Grand Vin St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Primarily Merlot blended with a bit of Cabernet Franc. Intense aromas of black cherry/currants and asphalt. Hint of roasted nuts. The pallet also features dark fruit flavors with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and spicy oak. Lots of acidity and power. Deep and brooding. Well balanced alcohol and tannins. — 6 months ago

The Islander Estate Vineyards

The Investigator Kangaroo Island Cabernet Franc 2008

See previous notes. My last bottle - purchased at the winery on Kangaroo Island. 100% Cabernet Franc. Herbs , Tea leaves, Charcoal, Black, fruits, a touch of caramel oak. Quite a full bodied opulent wine showing those black fruits. A product of the warm 2008 vintage in South Australia. A classy wine balancing the ripe fruit with the right amount of oak treatment. Very polished as you would expect from a $150 wine. Shows Jaques Lurton’s (Cheval Blanc) experience with the Cabernet Franc grape. — 3 months ago
