Winemaker's Notes:

Reddish purple color. Intense nose of red and black ripe fruit, with notes of spice bread, liquorice and vanilla.

Fleshy and complex on the palate; rounded and well-structured with nice, elegant tannins.

Good length; a pleasant and, enjoyable wine. Drink now or keep for a few years

About Bodegas Caro:

CARO was born of an alliance between two wine cultures (French and Argentine), two noble grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec), and two renowned wine families (Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolas Catena.)

Immediately after CARO's 2002 release, the first vintage of CARO, 2000, was acclaimed by professionals. The achievement of CARO has naturally led the partners to elaborate another wine based on the traditional Argentinean Malbec, conserving the fine balance between the characteristics of Argentina and the style of Bordeaux wines. As a commemoration to the Andean roots, the Indian name of a pretty little flower, which grows on the high altitude of the Andes has been chosen: Amancaya.

Vignerons since the 19th century, these two powerful organizations have combined their deep knowledge of Mendoza's high altitude terroir and the art of winemaking to create truly unique wine.
