88pointsSusana Balbo 2006 Crios Rose of Malbec Malbec (Mendoza)

Best Buy

Love the big handprint on the label as well as the burgundy color of this Malbec rosé, which ranks as one of the most consistent pink wines from a country (Argentina) that doesn't do rosé all that well. Winemaker Susana Balbo gets the size and tint from her Malbec fruit but manages to corral the bubble-gum sweetness and cloying weight that can afflict Argentine rosados. Crios is the right call for an Argentinean-style barbecue featuring empanadas, lots of salads and plenty of meat. Michael Schachner
