Nice Torrentes, well worth the 11.99 price. Read more

Nice Torrontes. Now part of the Polaner family, I understand, which is known to handle only quality wines (usually much smaller producers than this). Read more

A beautiful wine. The nose is a little offputting in its booziness; you can really smell the alcohol over anything else, but the wine itself is crisp, just dry enough to make it a good rose, and still fruity and smooth, with hints of strawberries and a touch of almost wild berries. I did notice a significant fizziness, which is delightful in a lighter-colored wine and probably a product of the use of champagne yeasts in the production of this wine. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I'll be seeking out more Rose of Malbecs next time I'm shopping for a crisp wine.

This wine had an interesting pale red color that looked a bit like a watermelon gatorade. On the nose there was an abundance of alcohol followed shortly by strong scents of wild strawberrys. This was a very smooth, easy drinking wine brimming with flavors of sweet strawberry and young cherry. Full review here! Salud! http://malbeceamos.com/2011/12/16/2010-crios-rose-of-malbec/

Enticing aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, white pear, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has beautiful structure and acidity similar to Sauvignon Blanc along with enticing fruit flavors. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry, this wine has to be tasted to be believed.

Chilled rosé is a nice way to cool off during those "lazy hazy days" of summer. Crios, meaning offspring, has a beautiful violet crimson hue and is weightier than most traditional rosés. The wine has a solid core of fruit layered with cherry pie spice, harmoniously balanced with vibrant acidity. Versatile in style, it complements a wide array of food, ranging from lighter summertime salads and pastas, to anything barbecued. So, take a moment to breathe in that fresh morning air, listen to the birds sing, feel the wind blow, look at the sun through a glass of rosé, let nature take its course and have some fun. Cheers!

The 2009 Rose of Malbec is dark pink in color with an enticing nose of strawberry and cherry. Ripe, dry, and full-flavored, this delicious Rose should be consumed over the next 12-18 months.

Pale pink-red. Musky aromas of watermelon and strawberry. Supple and slightly sweet (actually seven grams r.s.), with good palate presence and freshness of fruit. With its velvety mouth feel, this approaches a red wine in texture. Finishes spicy and persistent. Susana Balbo uses a Champagne yeast to ferment this wine at a cool temperature for a full 30 days.

The 2008 Rosé of Malbec is a saignée of Malbec sourced from 30-year-old ungrafted vines. It exhibits a fragrant bouquet of cherry and wild strawberries leading to a medium-bodied, dry, concentrated wine with lots of spicy red fruits and excellent balance. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.

This rosé is deep cherry in color and made from the Malbec grape variety, which has been absolutely thriving in Argentina's Mendoza region lately. This is very easy to drink: ripe, soft, and full of dark berry fruit on the palate - black cherries and red currants. Susana Balbo and her husband have been making wine in Argentina for over 25 years, producing many excellent wines that are well worth a try.

Love the big handprint on the label as well as the burgundy color of this Malbec rosé, which ranks as one of the most consistent pink wines from a country (Argentina) that doesn't do rosé all that well. Winemaker Susana Balbo gets the size and tint from her Malbec fruit but manages to corral the bubble-gum sweetness and cloying weight that can afflict Argentine rosados. Crios is the right call for an Argentinean-style barbecue featuring empanadas, lots of salads and plenty of meat.
