"This wine has a deep ruby color with bluish hues. Intense and complex nose where the typical aromas of each variety are nicely combined to show their best expression: black plums coming from Malbec, fresh cherries and raspberries from Bonarda, ripe black fruits from the Tannat, slightly mixed with spicy notes of black pepper and clove from Syrah. Juicy, it expands and intensifies in the mouth, gaining density and complexity as it is savored. It finishes with smooth, lush tannins and good length." —winemaker
"A very balanced and delicious red wine with blueberry and light spice. Linear and bright. Outstanding fruit and tannin tension. Screw cap. Drink now." —

"The 2014 Crios Red Blend is produced with 60% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot and some 10% Tannat, a formula that changes according to the vintage. This was produced as a limited edition at first, but it's now a permanent part of the portfolio produced every year. As with all the red Crios, most of the grapes are sourced from the Uco Valley with some 25% from Agrelo. There is ripe black fruit, spices and a hint of smoke, very clean, with no traces of oak. The palate is soft and elegant, a wine of impeccable balance and high drinkability. They want to offer a blend in a price range where you don't find many blends with this quality and complexity. They define it as layered, juicy and smooth and that's what you find in the bottle. It is a very tasty, quite intense and long red. This is a bargain for the quality it delivers. 120,000 bottles produced." —Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
