From nearly 19 acres recently acquired by the Decoster family, the 2011 Croix Cardinale is a beauty. Dense ruby-purple-colored, this vineyard was cropped at a low 28 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved nearly 15% alcohol. Supple and silky-textured with a sumptuous, full-bodied mouthfeel as well as loads of black currant and black cherry fruit, it is a rich, long, stunning beauty meant to be consumed over the next 10-12 years. Bravo! - Robert Parker

A big, rich wine with chocolate, nut and spice character. Full body, velvety tannins and flavorful finish. Decadent wine. First vintage here. Look for it. Better in 2017.

Rather lush, with warm plum sauce and raspberry coulis notes pumping along, lined with broad, velvety tannins. Flirts with a jammy character, but has enough of a charcoal hint to keep it honest. Drink now through 2018. ... Rather lush, with warm plum sauce and raspberry coulis notes pumping along, lined with broad, velvety tannins.
