Crios Malbec 2009 Mendoza
Tasted 16.04.11 with Beata, Jean-Marc and Sara. 13.5% ABV, about £9 UK retail (Majestic). A second wine of Pedro and Susana Balbo (Crios is a word for 'offspring' in Spanish). Excellent, every day Malbec. Lovely deep purple colour, ripe red fruits and coffee on the nose, fruit-forward and accessible but some elegance and depth too. Very good value for money. From 2011, 16/20.
