$65.00 $65.00

Bodegas Caro is a joint venture between two definitive wine empires, the Catena Family in Argentina and Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in Bordeaux. The Catena family has been perfecting viticulture in the Andes foothills for four generations, inspiring an entire region and the people surrounding it. The Rothschild (Lafite) family’s expertise in producing First Growth Grand Cru Classé wines completes this powerful partnership.

Caro has a strong Argentinian identity and showcases the country’s famous variety Malbec, with a complementary addition of Cabernet Sauvignon for the structure and elegance of a classic Left Bank Bordeaux. Developing for 18 months in oak, the 2018 reveals layer after layer of complex flavors that slowly unravel in the glass in this harmoniously balanced world-class wine.

"Beautiful, complete aromas of currants, sweet tobacco and iodine with some crushed cement, following through to a medium to full body with fine, linear tannins and a chewy finish that lasts a long time. Finesse with structure...Try after 2022."

“...Garnet red in the glass. The complex nose is more inference than statement; everything is present, but nothing stands out. Fresh plum and blackcurrant, country herbs, hints of violet, oak and spice feature alongside a touch of undergrowth. But the key is what happens in the mouth. It’s sheer velvet with broad, gently reactive tannins that deliver a chalky, juicy texture while the precise, detailed flavors grow more prominent with each sip. This is a wine where one can switch off their mind and simply enjoy, a rare and attractive quality.”

"The harmonious, classical and elegant 2018 Caro was produced with 76% Malbec and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the two grapes feel very integrated and complementary of each other. It has a very classical vinification and élevage in French barrique for 18 months. The oak is neatly integrated and folded into the fruit, the nose is complex, clean and elegant and the palate reveals a velvety texture with juicy fruit and round tannins..."
