The 2014 Críos Cabernet Sauvignon is elegant, earthy and balanced. A with all the Crios range it now has a small description of the style on the label that is a help for the consumer to know what they are going to find in the bottle. Today 75% of the grapes used in the winery are from Uco and 25% from the Agrelo zone in Luján de Cuyo. The red Crios range is mainly grapes from Tupungato with one-fourth grapes from Agrelo. It fermented in stainless steel with some inner staves and then matured in third-use barrels as they aim for fruit-driven wines without aromas of wood. There are plenty of plums, dark spices, balsamic aromas and notes of aromatic herbs and a ripe Cabernet character. Fresh, with good acidity with more tension and nerve in the palate with less alcohol and more balance. The tannins are very polished with a velvety texture. 96,000 bottles produced.

Deep red-ruby. Rather claret-like aromas of plum, blackberry, mocha, licorice and chocolate. Suppy, juicy and dry, with berry flavors complicated by licorice and game. This is serious juice for fifteen bucks. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and a hint of herbs.
