    Region: Argentina, South America

    Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 95922

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep purple color. Fruit driven wine with appealing red & black cherries flavors, black plums, hint of mint & cedar. On the palate it has a nice tannic texture that is full & round. Notes of vanilla & tobacco coming from French oak.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Concentrated and focused, with alluring cedar and roasted vanilla notes weaving through the dark currant and plum fruit, followed by a nicely structured finish. More like Cabernet than Malbec. Rock-solid. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2010. 10,000 cases imported.

    For a sense of class, elevation and style that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, this blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon is very much worth a go. It’s versatile and stocky, but it’s no fruit-only lug. That said, expect saturated berry flavors, herbal hints, baked notes and firm tannins. Masculine but approachable. Drink now through 2011.

    Bright ruby-red. Complex nose offers currant, graphite, tobacco, licorice, cedar and fresh herbs. Ripe, juicy and suave, with lovely density to the supple flavors of currant, graphite and dark chocolate. At once velvety and energetic, with a peppery nuance perking up the dark fruit flavors. The firm finish features sweet tannins. I find more thorough ripeness here than in the 2006 version, making this a stunning value in claret-like Argentine wine. Caro is a joint venture of Lafite-Rothschild and Nicolas Catena.

    The 2006 is a little better but this is still a great wine. Smooth and yet not simple.
