"The 2016 La Croix St Georges is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc picked from 4-10 October and matured in 50% new oak. The alcohol comes in at 13.8%. This has quite an opulent black cherry and boysenberry scented bouquet, a hint of black olive in the background. The palate is smooth on the entry, quite rounded with good body, slightly lower in acidity than its peers with a caressing finish. It just needs a touch of detail and precision to come through on the finish. Maybe this is just a notch below the 2015, but it may well gain more sophistication in barrel."
