2005 chateau la croix de gay
"This is one of the finest efforts to yet emerge from this estate located on the plateau of Pomerol. A combination of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, it tips the scales at nearly 14% alcohol. Exhibiting a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a sweet bouquet of loamy soil, blueberries, cherries, plums, and mocha, it possesses lovely ripeness, savory elegance, purity, and overall balance. Enjoy it over the next 15 years."
