Charred smokey fat on nose. Dark color. Red and black fruit on dense palate. Tannic and not for the meek.

Nice dark color, staining the class but actually fairly light on the palate. Nice fruit with enough acid to keep it balanced but fairly short and simple.

Easy, yet bold. Tasty. Not overly complex but packed with lots of flavor. Nice red. Nothing offensive here.

Heavy on the dark fruits. Good for a weeknight drink.

Crios 2012 Limited edition
(40% Malbec, 40% Bonarda,15% Tannat, 5% Syrah)

Clear, ruby-purple.
Clean medium+ black cherry, blackberry, raspberry, plum.
Developing, would like to revisit in 2 years.
Dry, medium acidity, medium+ tannin, medium alc, medium body, medium + plum and cherry on top of dark gnarliness of Bonarda & Tannat, finishing with some bright Syrah notes. Medium+ finish.

Very Good.
Drink now, but, has potential for shorter term holding (2 years). Would love to see how this ages. Fantastic wine for the price.
Fruity, Chewy, Balanced, very tasty and satisfying. Red Fruit notes are clean and polished, glistening with acid, on top of structural tannin & dark fruit notes. Make it a case purchase.
