Blue/red at the rim - shy nose. Medium to light bodied (for claret), initially rather heavy on the oak, but better after an hour's air. Not very dense, but pleasing and balanced - this will give a lot of pleasure in 2-3 years: this wine is not trying to ape the style of greater years.
2012 Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot that reached 13.10% alcohol, and will be aged in 60% new French oak for 12 months. Coffee bean, boysenberry, licorice, and a fresh cherry finish are the hallmarks of what you’ll find in this medium-bodied wine. 88-90 Pts
