Estimated delivery between July 24 and July 26.

The 2015 Ch?teau Croix Cardinale is a rich dry and flavourful blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc with lifted red fruit flavours of raspberry coulis and strawberries. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, bright acidity, balanced and poised with a delineated, slightly earthy finish that has just the right amount of dryness to urge another sip. 

What the critics say
A rich, unctuous wine, the 2015 Croix Cardinale is laced with dark cherry, plum, torrefaction, chocolate, tobacco, spice and leather. The super-ripe, late-harvest approach yields a powerful wine endowed with considerable depth and richness, but less in the way of aromatic intensity or freshness. The blend is 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, brought in between October 13 and 20, which is to say very late for the year. In my view, this is picked too late and overdone, even among wines made in a similar style.
