Château La Croix De Beaucaillou Saint-Julien 2011 Bordeaux Red Wine, $39.99-$53.99, 90 points, was black at the core transitioned into a deep red with a purple cast at the glass shallows, and terminated with a clear wine ring.
Aromatic cedar, clove, earth, plum, and blackberry were pleasant.
Nearly full-bodied with good acidity, strident, but manageable tannin, and flavors that reflected the aromas were good as well.
Finished long on the trailing palate, tart pomegranate, accelerating tannin (a bit astringent), oak notes, a well integrated 13% alcohol, and red pepper.
