Crios Malbec 2020
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Vallée d’Uco|
A fresh, pure expression of the variety, this Malbec displays aromas of violets, cherries and spices. Fruity, with balanced acidity on the palate, notes of ripe red fruits and a subtle hint of oak. Pairs well with grilled red meats, pasta with red sauce, hard cheeses, empanadas, chocolate desserts or dulce de leche.
The 2020 Malbec Crios from the Uco Valley was 40% aged in used wood for eight months. Intense purple in color. The nose offers dark and red fruit ranging from plum to blackberry with hints of syrup, herbs and a smoky backdrop. The palate delivers an alcoholic energy. Skinny tannins and freshness result in pretty intense flavors for the price.
