A beautiful, deep, vibrant rose color. Has a surprising amount of body for a rosé wine,
and beautiful aromas of fresh, ripe strawberries. Very soft, yet full on the palate with flavors of wild strawberries and young cherries that come rushing in, accompanied by some spice notes and a clean, dry finish.
This is the perfect chicken wine and a charming companion to spicy Asian cuisine. Keep one in the fridge at all times and you'll always have a delicious wine to enjoy with light snacks and cheeses.
"Bright, light red. Perfumed aromas of red berries and flowers. Cleanly made and lively, with a lovely hint of sweetness to the red berry and spice flavors. Very attractive, fruity rose with dusty tannins and very good finishing lift. Susanna Balbo's son Jose Lovaglio, a graduate of UC/Davis, took over winemaking responsibility for the Crios wines with the 2011 vintage."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2011 Rose of Malbec (100%) was fermented and aged in stainless steel. Aromas of strawberry, cherry blossom, and cranberry lead to a crisp, dry, savory wine that should prove versatile at the dining table..."
The Wine Advocate
"Shiny pink in color, with youthful, crisp aromas of cherry and watermelon. Zesty and fresh on the tongue, with spunky cherry and raspberry flavors that finish with natural sweetness. Candied to an extent, but mostly it’s fresh and balanced.
