The Crios Malbec from Susana Balbo is an excellent, grape varietal and balanced red wine from the Argentine wine region of Mendoza.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in an appealing dark red with violet highlights. The expressive bouquet reveals notes of juicy blackberries, ripe cherries and crushed blueberries - subtly accompanied by floral notes of violet and vanilla. On the palate, this wine has a wonderful balance between the dark fruit fullness and the silky tannin structure. The balanced body can be wonderfully absorbed by the fresh character of this Argentinian red wine. The finale comes with a pleasant length.
