Crios De Susanna Balbo Malbec 2009

  • Area: Argentina, Mendoza
  • Grape: Malbec
  • Alcohol: 13.9%
  • Rating: Black B- Dilettante B
Description: Dark and brooding flavors of spice, purple fruit and black licorice. The Crios has a touch of heat on the finish that dissipates with air. Best decanted for an hour. Another year in the bottle should tame its youthful zeal.

Glass sensitive. If it isn't pleasing out of one glass, try another. Even if the glasses are the same brand, same style and out of the same box.

Price: $13

Previous vintage: 2007
