Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, October 2012

    Unquestionably Amancaya's big Brother. This is deep dark and opaque in colour and full of brooding black fruit flavours with hints of vanilla and spice. An extremely rich and powerful wine with a notable tannic structure which will allow this wine to age extremely well and whilst many Argentinian wine lovers will enjoy it today, it has the ability to blossom fully in 3 - 5 years' time and to age beyond.

Producer

Bodegas Caro

A possible partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite and the Catenafamily was first mooted in 1988. Initial enthusiasm quickly became a concrete plan to produce asingle wine that would combine French and Argentine cultures and the two signature grapes of each producer, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Catena family has produced wine for threegenerations. Consequently, it was able to draw on its vast knowledge of the high altitude terroirs of the Mendoza region as well as its passion for Malbec. DBR-Lafite contributed its centuries-old skills in growing, vinifying and ageing great Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as its know-how in blending different grape varieties to produce one wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. Located in the heart of the Mendoza region, the winery at Bodegas Caro is also at the centre of the Caro project. The wines have been made here since the 2002 vintage and work is still in progress in the cellar to further improve facilities.

Region

Mendoza

Mendoza is the largest viticultural region in Argentina, located in the west of Argentina around the city of the same name. The region accounts for more than two-thirds of the country's total wineproduction, which focuses on red wine production. Malbec is the most important grape variety but Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, among many others, are also grown. Central Mendoza has the longest tradition for fine wine production as the climate is temperate and the soils are unusually gravelly for Argentina as elsewhere in Mendoza soils are typically alluvial and sandy.
