Tasted right out of newly opened bottle. Closed nose. Very tight, tannic, a bit thin. Slightly vegetal mixed with a bit of sour cranberry. Became better with some aeration and in another 5 years this may open up and reveal something more interesting but right now it's very subtle and frankly pretty dull. Did not do much for me...I can think of MANY ways to better spend your $209.

Pretty sure about $150 of that price is for the word "Cheval" on the label.
