Dominio del Plata Ben Marco Malbec 2005
Crios means offspring (as in children). Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines that haven quite grown up to the same level of quality and maturity as her more expensive Susana Balbo signature label wines, but they receive the same loving care and attention throughout the winemaking process. The label features a series of three connected and overlapping hands, an image inspired by a Mayan artifact. The three hands represent Susana and her two children. By definition, Crios wines are meant to be consumed while still young and vibrant and have great fruit expression.
Tastes exactly like Alamos Malbec at twice the price. A little extra flavor profile of Lifesavers' Creme Savers Raspberries n' Creme. Delicious.
I had this with a hearty beef stew - it was outstanding. Great vaule at $19.
Excellent! Purchased at The Weinery, N. Scituate, on their recommendation. I'll go back for a case.
