Crios de Susana Balbo Rose of Malbec
Don't cry for me . . . ok, so I can't really sing but if I could this is one wine I would sing about. This stunner hails from the scenic Mendoza valley and was carefully crafted from Malbec grapes by one of the first female winemakers in Argentina. Think ripe strawberries and cherries--fruity without the sweetness. For those of you who fear the pinks because you grew up with the words "white zinfandel" ringing in your ears, fear not! This rose is dry and full bodied enough to stand up to a gaucho's diet of grilled meat, but flexible enough to pair with fish and chicken dishes as well. This is a standard in our fridge year-round. Look for 2006 or 2007 vintages. Anything older might still be okay, but definitely not as reliable.
