Whereas we used to be big fans of the Crios rosado, it has fallen off over the past two vintages. This wine is weird and caustic; it smells like cracked pepper, rhubarb and cut grass, and it tastes peppery and mildly vegetal. Mouthfeel is the saving grace; it feels good and refreshing on the palate.
