The 2006 Chateau Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon rates as 87 points with the CellarTracker community. Wine Spectator does not have a rating for the 2006 vintage of this wine, but rates the 2005 and 2008 vintages as 83 and 85, respectively. I align with the CellarTracker rating of 87. Cabernet sauvignon is a grape that enjoys many great vintages from a multitude of wine producers. While a rating of 87 is not particularly impressive, it is a decent score for a random occasion red wine, which appropriately fits the 2006 Chateau Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon. However, at a price point of $30 per bottle one is sure to find better cabernet options. This wine would be a good deal in the low $20 range.
Rating Scale: Extraordinary (95-100 points); Outstanding (90-94); Very Good to Excellent (85-89); Good (80-84); Average (75-79); Below average (70-74); Avoid (50-69)

Not bad - but not great either. Liked the nose better than the palate. A little astringent with weak finish. Even though $20 is not that much, I think there are a lot better bottles available at this price point imo.
Brought this to a holiday dinner with friends. This clearly was the best wine among more expensive wines shared over the evenings festivities. We were all impressed with the value for dollar. Rich bouquet, long legs, smooth with medium finish. Will buy again!
