Wine Critic Reviews:

...a kaleidoscopic bouquet with dark plum, iodine, minerals and a touch of kirsch that develops with aeration, a perfect symmetry between Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The palate has sweet, sappy entry with crisp acidity...The Cabernet Franc begins to exert its influence with time and it has a svelte, very harmonious, youthful finish that one step further would be almost viscous in texture...there is not doubt that this is the real deal...

Sokolin 1982 Cheval Blanc Tasting Notes:

A massive red that takes space and wins affection in a heartbeat, rightfully claiming its status of a classic. Its full, luscious body is packed and loaded with raspberries, blackberries, marzipan, orange zest and toffee, if one had to pick out just a few notes from the enchanting realm this wine cultivates. The palate is grazed with this force of pleasure, its flavors overlapping in a heated dialogue on your tastebuds, the best sort of overwhelmed you've ever been. The finish is prolonged and pulsating, taking over and leaving you no choice but to give in and see where it washes you ashore.

This is one of the most impressive vintages the year had seen produced, praised and wanted globally. Since it's just entering adulthood and shows off the structure capable of withstanding many, many years more in the cellar, wine experts predict a bright and long future ahead of it. If you want a bottle of your own, you'd better buy one now before it's snatched.
