Crios Cabernet Sauvignon

Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza

Susana Balbo founded CRIOS as a tribute to her children, Jose and Ana. Together, they craft wines to be enjoyed across generations and to represent values they strive to instill in their own families. Crios Cabernet Sauvignon signifies the trust in instinct that was needed to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that could compete on the world stage.

Tasting Notes

A pure expression of the varietal, with aromas of plum, currant, espresso and mocha tinged with spice and smoke from the French oak. Herbal notes, bright acidity and fine tannins create balance and structure on the palate.

Grilled and roasted meats, empanadas, chili.

Max. Temp. 28° C. 25 days maceration. Aged 9 months in 100% French oak.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Alcohol 14.5%; acidity 5.7 g/l.

Grapes are grown in Luján de Cuyo, at an average elevation of 1167 m.

Tasting Notes

Dark reddish color. In the nose, it's elegant, earthy and balanced, with nicely integrated spices. In the mouth, the wine has a great austerity and freshness, with spices and herbal aromas. The ripe, vibrant tannins give to the wine an elegant structure and an amazingly long finish.

Grilled and roasted meats, empanadas, chili.

Max. Temp. 28° C. 25 days maceration. Aged 9 months in 100% French oak.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Alcohol 13.7%; acidity 5.4 g/l.

    Crios Cabernet Sauvignon
    Vinous, August 2018

    "Good medium red. A sexy note of musky, smoky reduction to the aromas of plum, currant, espresso and mocha, plus a whiff of candied flowers. Supple, nicely concentrated, inexpensive Cabernet with good herbal lift and bright acidity enlivening its varietally accurate currant, tobacco and spice flavors. In fact, this wine relies as much on its sound acidity as on its fine dusty tannins for structure. Distinctly riper than the 2016 version and an excellent value. Sappy and easy to drink."

    Crios Cabernet Sauvignon
    Wine Advocate, July 2018

    "There are slightly more spicy aromas in the 2017 Críos Cabernet Sauvignon, partly because of the varietal aromas and partly because some 40% of the wine matured in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels for about nine months. They like stonier soils for Cabernet Sauvignon, and in the last few years, this has been produced with grapes from the Valle de Uco. They want to avoid green aromas and also the over-ripeness, and the stony soils are the best for that. 90,000 bottles produced."
