The wine has a beautiful reddish/purple color as most good Malbecs do. The aromas are a mix of fresh crushed 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 lurking in the background. This is a wine that you'll 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?. - Winery

The 2008 Rose of Malbec is a saignee 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.

A huge malbec, this is generous and gentle, as satisfying as a bowl of blackberries with cream. Its soft tannins and mellow acidity are complemented by the warmth of its alcohol. Give it a year or two to gain in complexity.

Tangy and minerally, the 2008 Crios Malbec showed bright aromas and flavors of sweet blueberry and blackberry; modest notes of vanilla and spice illustrate her judicious use of oak. Itrsquo;s straightforward, with a juicy finish and fairly plush tannins. I gave it 88 points, non-blind. Itrsquo;s great with a steak, but also enjoyable on its own and would make a great party wine.
