Product DescriptionJames Suckling Review
Extremely beautiful aromas of dried flower, currant, fresh leather and some tar. Full body with silky tannins that give a beautiful texture that leads to ripe currant, orange peel and incense. Complex and complete. 50% malbec from Agrelo and 50% cabernet sauvignon from Valle de Uco. So beautiful now but will age gracefully.
Wine & Spirits Review
100 Top Wines of 2016
This is one of the best vintages of Caro, the joint venture between the Catena family of Mendoza and Lafite from Bordeaux. Half of the wine is cabernet sauvignon from Altamira, in the heights of Uco Valley, providing a firm structure, the other half is malbec from old vines in Las Compuertas, adding all the notes of violets and sour cherries that one can find in the best Luján de Cuyo malbec. The red fruit and floral notes outline the contours of a wine that seems athletic and tight, rather than fat. Cellar this for five years or more; it will continue to gain in complexity.
Wine Tasting Notes
A joint effort by Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) of France and Nicolas Catena of Argentina.
Intense ruby color. On the nose, aromas of red and black fruits, mingled with hints of mocha and spices. Evolves slowly, revealing layer after layer of elegant fragrances. On the palate, the acidity is refreshing and persistent. Well-balanced tannins contribute to the harmony and smoothness of the palate.
50% Malbec, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
