Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017
(WA91-93 points) The 2016 Croix Cardinale, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, felt exotic on the nose, touch of meat juices percolating through the ripe black fruit. The palate is ripe and sweet on the entry... (WA91-93 points) The 2016 Croix Cardinale, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, felt exotic on the nose, touch of meat juices percolating through the ripe black fruit. The palate is ripe and sweet on the entry, but underneath there are fine tannin and that Cabernet Franc component lends a lovely bell pepper touch, notwithstanding impressive structure and length. One to look out for. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, April 2017
(WS90-93 points) This is dark and winey, with primal cassis, blackberry and raspberry fruit flavors forming the majority right now, though there are very enticing licorice snap, black tea and singed alder accents...

(JS91-92 points) Lots of crushed-stone, chalk and blackberry character. Medium body and a solid core of fruit. Focused and interesting. We will see but I like it.
