Crios Malbec Argentina Red Wine 750 mL
Vinous 89 points – Made with grapes from the Uco Valley and 40% aged in used oak, this is a textbook Malbec: purple in hue with clear notes of fresh, intriguing plum and cherry. Juicy in the mouth; the soft structure is kept in line by the young tannins, helping to stretch out the finish. An expressive, sunny red, intense but easygoing.
Susana not only became the first female enologist in Argentina after graduating with honors from Don Bosco University in Mendoza in 1981, but also was brave enough (or crazy enough as some would have thought at that time) to build an export category for Malbec when no one knew about this grape variety. Susana elaborated this distinguished variety which stands out for its notes of black cherries, spices and violets.
