Susana Balbo Malbec Mendoza Crios 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): The grapes for the 2015 Críos Malbec are sourced exclusively in the Valle de Uco, from Los Chacayes, Vista Flores, Los Árboles and Gualtallary Sur to be precise. This cold and wet vintage helped achieve the drinkability and freshness they aim for in this wine. It fermented in stainless steel and part of the wine matured in well-seasoned, neutral French oak barrels for nine months. There are some toasty notes and a core of perfectly ripe berries. The palate is fresh and balanced, quite tasty. Drink: 2016-2019. (Dec 2016)

Crios means offspring and this Malbec is the offspring of Susanas Signature Malbec. The wine has a beautiful reddish/purple color as most good Malbecs do. The aromas are a mix of freshly crushed black cherries and toasty/smoky oak just enough to frame the exuberant fruit. On the palate, the flavors of cherries and spice are obvious, and the jammy fruit quality just keeps coming on strong, with hints of spice and sandalwood lurking in the background. This is a wine that youll want to buy by the case because it can be consumed at almost any occasion, whether at a fancy dinner party, or just curled up on the couch in front of a movie. Fun and delicious what more can you ask for?! - WineryVarietal notes: 90% malbec, 10% bonardaOrganic: PracticingVineyard: All vineyard are estate owned and sustainably farmed.
