Crios Malbec 2022 / 750 ml.

Item#: 70898

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, April 4, 2023
A fresh and spicy malbec with plenty of currants, red cherries and a hint of black olives. Linear and juicy on the palate with a medium body and a flavorful, fruity finish. Sleek tannins thread through it all. Drink now. (Zekun Shuai)
RP91+91+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
Tasting the 2022 Crios Malbec next to the new organic one, it was easy to see how this wine from the Valle de Uco (from Los Chacayes, Vista Flores, Los Árboles and Gualtallary Sur) is subtler and has a different point of balance despite having very similar parameters. Here, 40% of the volume spends eight months in used French oak barrels, but there is no aromatic influence of the élevage. It’s fresh, balanced and juicy but with a little more austerity and fine-grained tannins. Clean, approachable and tasty. 720,000 bottles produced represents a huge chunk of the total production of the winery. (Luis Gutiérrez)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2024
Subtle aromas of cinnamon, black and red fruit form an attractive bouquet. This is a smooth wine, with a desirable tannin structure. Mulberry and blackberry flavors are enhanced by a touch of oak spices and extend into an enjoyable finish. A classic Malbec at an affordable price that will pair perfectly with grilled meats. (Jesica Vargas)

Where It's From

Region / Mendoza

View more wines from Mendoza

Mendoza is Argentina's biggest wine region, and with a footprint that spans a diverse geography, it's able to produce a wide array of wines. Chief amongst them are Argentina's ever-popular Malbecs, but you'll also find world-class Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, and more produced here. The geography is diverse, but tends to be mountainous, and the higher elevations play a sizable role in grape growing, providing cooler temperatures at night.

Country / Argentina

View more wines from Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.

A smart use of oak barrels adds baking spices to the profile of this Malbec while preserving freshness. It has aromas of cinnamon and black fruit. The palate is full of ripe plum and mulberry flavors that extend into the aftertaste along with sweet spices. (Jesica Vargas)
VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2023
The 2022 Malbec Salentein Reserve from the Uco Valley was 60% aged 12 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels. Garnet-red with purple sheen. The nose offers pink pepper, ripe plum and oaky aromas. Indulgent in the mouth, the juicy, grippy flow delivers lingering ripe flavor.

Item #: 71541

JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, May 3, 2022
Perfumed nose of elderflowers, orange blossoms, lychees, white peaches and green apples. It’s medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and a fruity, floral and crisp palate. Excellent freshness. Zesty finish. Vegan. Drink now. Screw cap.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2022
The 2021 Torrontés Crios is a 50/50 blend of grapes from Cafayate & Paraje Altamira. Pale green in the glass. With a nose of jasmine, rose, lime, lychee and hints of herbs, it has good fat and volume for the variety. The freshness is well-integrated and the alcohol unusually and admirably low at 12.5%.
