Dark reddish/purple color. Intense aroma of black raspberries and a touch of vanilla. Experience a rush of flavors upon first sip of this medium-bodied wine - ripe blackberry and red plum, young forest floor, hints of smoke and spice. This depth of flavor and intensity on the palate is almost unheard of for wines at this price. It’s a winner both before and during a meal. Certainly enjoyable in its youth, but will age beautifully. A fun wine to try with a wide range of red wine-friendly foods and one that will delight even the most pretentious connoisseur.
"Critics the world over love Crios wines. The consensus view is that Crios represents great value for your wine dollar and I couldn’t agree more. This red blend is a case in point. A beautiful aroma gives way to a rich, deep flavour of berries and plums. Make sure you give this wine some air to get the full depth of flavour. Great with a burger or a rich stew. Act quickly because this wine is on sale this weekend." -Ron Wilson (link)
