Susana Balbo “Crios” Red Blend

Aromas of plum, black cherry, and tobacco leaf roll up from the glass. Plum, unsweetened chocolate, and tobacco lead on the attack, followed by black cherry on the mid-palate. Tannins are fine-grained with almost no bite. This is rich, full, and round, filled with black and red fruit. Drink with tira de asado. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
