Number 18 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
Bodegas 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 Lafite Rothschild and Nicolas Catena).
The 2005 Amancaya is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Malbec from 50 year-old high-altitude vineyards in the Andes.
Intense purple-red color. A fruity wine, dominated by the ripe red cherry and wild strawberries with notes of vanilla and some smoke given by the oak. Concentrated, with good tannins and full mid palate.
"...this blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon has a deep core of black and red fruit enhanced by a refreshing acidity and muscular tannins. Although you can enjoy it now with osso buco, it will gain in complexity and charm with five years in bottle..."
