CARO was born of the 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. 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 a unique wine: CARO. Two cultures, two families, two varietals, one wine.
This is an elegant and refined assemblage of Malbec and Cabernet. A wine with
intense ripe red and blackberry fruit, perfectly integrated with the French oak. Good elegant tannins hold the aromas to the long end. The typical Argentinean fruity and sweet Malbec is hold and complete by the elegance of flavors and texture of the "French" Cabernet Sauvignon.
This has been a steady Argentia Bordeaux. Buy again.
I was excited to try these two blends together in the 50/50 balance. Malbec is one of my favorite wines, along with cab sav and the blending of the two worked out extremely well. A full bodied wine with a hint of licorice and spice.
