Crios Malbec 750ML
This glass-staining wine — purple-black in hue, with violet streaks — offers a wide range of aromas and flavors. We noted dark flowers, menthol, tobacco, vanilla, cola, minty chocolate and dark berry fruit, picking up some black licorice and black pepper as it opens up. Quite young now, its thick, medium-grain tannins bode well for the wine to evolve and come together over several years. If you’re not the patient type, decant it and enjoy it with roasted meats hot off the grill.
