The 2015 Croix Cardinale is composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 13 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it has a nose of blackberries, plums, black cherries and spice cake with touches of pepper and fragrant earth. The medium to full-bodied mouth is rich and chewy with a good core of fruit. Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
