A fresh, pure expression of the varietal, with aromas of violets, cherries, mocha and spice. Juicy tannins and balanced acidity complement perfectly ripe red fruit flavors, while a subtle hint of oak adds complexity. Try with tuna steak, lamb, hamburgers.

  • v88

Bright red-ruby. Varietally expressive aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet, plus a positive whiff of leather. Juicy and penetrating if a bit less nuanced in the early going than the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon. But the wine's high notes of violet and flowers make it very easy to drink already. Finishes with very smooth tannins and a touch of acidity yet to be absorbed. Susana Balbo has updated the labels of this inexpensive entry-level line-up to convey to the market that the Crios bottlings are premium wines.
