    Winemaker's Notes:

    A beautiful, deep, vibrant rosé color. Has a surprising amount of body for a rosé wine, and beautiful aromas of fresh, ripe wild strawberries. On the palate, the flavors of strawberries and young cherries come rushing in, accompanied by some spice notes and a clean, dry finish. This is the perfect chicken wine and a charming companion to mildly spicy Asian cuisine. Keep one in the fridge at all times and you'll always have a delicious wine to enjoy with light snacks and cheeses. Best consumed in its youth.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Rose of Malbec is dark pink in color with an enticing nose of strawberry and cherry. Ripe, dry, and full-flavored, this delicious Rose should be consumed over the next 12-18 months.

    I've searched a great deal to find a worthwhile summer rose. Crios, a malbec based wine, does the trick. It has body where most do not. And it dry not sweet. It works with everything from oysters on thru burgers

    We generally favor heavier reds, so I bought this wine with low expectations just to have a rose on hand. After one bottle, I ordered a case. It is light and crisp, but has much more depth and character than typical American pinks (like white zins and white grenache's). Not overly sweet at all, and meatiness and earthiness of malbec is present on the back, beneath summer fruit and florals up front. This wine isn't going to "wow" anybody, but it is very nice to have moderately chilled, on a warm evening on the patio with fresh fuits or cheeses.

    This would be a great wine to serve with hamburgers. It was a very pleasant light wine.
