Beautiful black fruit and solid structure in this unfiltered, high-altitude grown Mendoza Cabernet. The time maturing in French and American oaks served to contribute some spice and low volume (thank goodness) hints of vanilla. Sophisticated, textbook, highly un-New Worldly style of Cabernet. Susana crafts these young wines consistently well, so I highly recommend any of the Crios wines that you can find, with my favorites being the Torrontes, Syrah-Bonarda and this one.

Deep purplish color with chocolaty aroma and strong grape / dark fruit notes. I tasted this alongside two (slightly higher priced) Napa cabernets, and the difference in quality was overwhelming. This had a much heavier body and the finish was swift, aggressive and tannic in comparison. However, it did open up a bit after about 15 minutes in the glass, and the finish became smoother. Probably won't buy again.

Bright ruby-red. Blackcurrant and graphite on the nose. Sweeter and softer than the 2003 on entry, then more structured on the back half, but with a lovely light touch. Bitter cherry and spice flavors seem more vibrant than those of the 2003. Finishes with very good length.

The minty blackberry-scented 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon has a personality that, while possessing admirable qualities, is tightly wound and ungiving. Drink it over the next 5 years.

Lots of brawn now, so let it harmonize fully with short-term cellaring. Best from 2003 through 2005.

Forward and juicy, with lots of raspberry and boysenberry flavor backed by toast and mineral hints. Fruit-filled finish. Drink now.

Intense, dark ruby color with enticing aromas of ripe, black plums and blackcurrants. The richly textured plum and currant flavors are joined by accents of dark chocolate and some vanilla-scented oak. The ripe, vibrant tannins give the wine beautiful structure and an amazing long finish. This is a big wine for just a little money. Drink it now or over the next few years to enjoy the fruit flavors at their best. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

A ripe, round, friendly style, with dark plum and cassis fruit wrapped inside a toasty mocha note. Drink now.
