Susana Balbo Crios Malbec is a beautiful red wine gem from Argentina and one of the top values in the world of wines. Susana Balbo, Argentina's leading and most innovative winemaker, was inspired to change the perception of Malbec from a forgotten grape to Argentina's iconic varietal. Against the odds, she created a wine that elevates Malbec to world-class quality. The fruit is sourced from the top areas of the Uco Valley: Vista Flores, La Consulta, Alta Mira and Tupungato. All the vineyards are ungrafted and farmed organically at an average altitude of 4000 feet above sea level.
Susana Balbo Crios Malbec is brilliant violet-red in color, made of 100% Malbec. The nose is vibrant with signature notes of black cherries, oak spice and violets. The palate is lush with hints of spice, showing ripe varietal red plums and black cherries. Starting with the 2014 vintage, oak usage has been reduced by 75% with a combination of 2-, 3- and 4-year-old oak barrels. The wine has a silky structure with a long, rich finish.
