90 POINTS - ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

Beautiful reddish-purple color. Aromas of crushed blueberries, cherries and blackberries. In the mouth, sweet red fruit flavors are in perfect balance with a subtle oakiness and a core of perfectly ripe berries. The palate is fresh and balanced.  Pair with tuna steak, lamb, or hamburgers.  WINERY

Paz Levinson: What a cracking wine! Black plum and violet aromas lead to a fresh and crunchy palate, with balanced alcohol. Fresh, pure – and amazing value. Patricio Tapia: Incredible value here. This is a pure expression of Malbec, with aromas of violets and filled with cherry notes. An impressive expression of the grape. Drinking Window 2018 - 2020.  DECANTER

The 2017 Críos Malbec saw a change in the range, where the oak staves have been discontinued and only 30% percentage of the wine aged in well-seasoned neutral oak barrels. This is perfumed and juicy, with nice ripeness and a tasty palate. It is very accessible and comes from a typical vintage in which the wine managed to maintain moderate alcohol. 350,000 bottles produced. 2017 was a low-yielding year, the second shortest in the last few years.  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE
