The Guadalupe Valley, located in the Mexican state of Baja California, is known for producing some of the best wines in the country. Among them, we tell you about our Segundo Crío, a Cabernet Sauvignon that has earned a special place in the hearts of Mexican wine lovers.

El Segundo Crío is a medium to full-bodied wine, made with high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown in the Guadalupe Valley. One of the main differences that distinguishes it from other wines is its fermentation process. Instead of fermenting in oak barrels, Segundo Crío is fermented in concrete tanks, which gives it a soft and velvety texture.

Second Crío fermentation takes place in concrete pools instead of stainless steel tanks, which gives it its characteristic soft and velvety texture. After fermentation, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months, where its maturation is completed.

French oak barrels are highly valued in the production of high-quality wines, as they provide subtle flavors and aromas of vanilla, cedar and spices, as well as fine and elegant tannins that integrate perfectly with the flavors and aromas of the grapes. The time that Segundo Crío spends in French oak barrels gives it the opportunity to develop these additional flavors and aromas, while further softening the tannins, producing an even more balanced and rounded wine on the palate.

In general, the fermentation process in particular and the subsequent maturation in French oak barrels are two key factors that make Segundo Crío a different and special wine compared to other Cabernet Sauvignon from the Valle de Guadalupe and the world in general. Its soft and velvety texture, combined with its classic Cabernet Sauvignon flavors and aromas, make it an elegant and accessible wine, ideal to accompany a wide variety of dishes, from red meats to strong cheeses and chocolate desserts.

In summary, Segundo Crío is a medium to full-bodied wine, with notes of red fruits, spices and a touch of oak. Its fermentation process in concrete tanks gives it a soft and velvety texture, and makes it less tannic than other Cabernet Sauvignon wines. If you are looking for a smooth and round wine in the mouth, Segundo Crío is an excellent option.
