Winemaker Notes

Intense, deep red color with fine hints of crimson. The nose offers pleasant aromas of red and dark fruit, with redcurrants, also some mint and cedar. The bouquet fills out with notes of vanilla, spices and mocha, characteristic of French oak. This is a dense, complex wine, with good tannic structure. The lingering finesse of the tannins gives the wine good length and a pleasant, soft mouthfeel. Deep, aromatic and complex with very appealing intense fruit.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling

This shows such fabulous aromas of flowers, chili, spices, minerals and licorice. Juniper. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a refined and fresh finish. 60% malbec and 40% cabernet sauvignon. Drink now.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Compact, featuring concentrated cassis, wild berry, spice box and aromatic tobacco notes wound with full yet fine tannins. Full-bodied and complex, delivering a long aftertaste of fruit and sweet spice.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Caro is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon from Agrelo, Gualtallary and Altamira and is raised in French oak barrels (75% new). It has a very elegant bouquet of dark cherries, boysenberry and cassis fruit that marry with oak stylishly. There are touches of sandalwood and game that lie underneath and these should develop in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannins. It is beautifully balanced and pure, with blackberry, graphite, and cedar wood and briar. It glides across the palate towards a very focused, precise finish. Excellent. Drink 2014-2025.

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.
