Suckling: "A very balanced and fresh red with blackberry, chocolate and subtle hints of cappuccino. Medium body, very fine tannins and lovely length."
Galloni: "The 2021 Croix Canon offers terrific fruit intensity from the get go. Ripe, racy and supple, the 2021 impresses with its notable texture. The Franc is way up in
2021, and that yields a wine with tremendous nuance and complexity. It has the
complexity to be one of the sleepers of the vintage."
Neal Martin: "The 2021 Croix Canon contains much more Cabernet Franc this year due to
frost and mildew damage to the Merlo, and was aged in 30% new oak. It was
showing a bit of wood when I tasted it because it was served at a slightly lower
temperature (it’s remarkable what a difference that makes). The palate is
medium-bodied with fine tannins and plenty of black fruit laced with pencil
lead and sous-bois. Quite structured toward the finish. This deserves 3–4 years
