Description | Details | Rating

Dark reddish color with aroma of ripe plums, freshly crushed cherries framed by light hints of sweet vanilla from the oak. In the mouth, the intense flavors of ripe red fruits mingle with red pepper notes typical of the Cabernet and lead to a long, juicy finish. Lively and well balanced this wine offers an amazing fruit quality and complexity on the palate. This wine will pair well with traditional Cabernet-friendly foods like grilled or roasted meats. Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"Balbo's favorite grape after Torrontes is Cabernet, and she gives extra attention to the vineyard selection used for the 2015 Cri­os Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine's profile is that of an elegant, earthy and balanced red with nicely integrated spices from its nine months in used oak barriques and the herbal notes of the variety. When I first put my nose in the glass I thought they had done a new Cabernet Franc in the Cri­os range, such is the freshness and high-pitched fruit here. From this vintage on all the grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Valle de Uco, a place that provides good freshness to the wines and saw a much healthier crop than Luján for the variety in 2015. This has a profile with great austerity and freshness, with spices and herbal aromas and beautiful tannins. Simply superb. 90,000 bottles produced."
