Description

A joint venture between Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite and Nicolas Catena, Caro is a marriage of Bordeaux and Argentina in terms of people, knowledge and grapes, making a Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec blend that draws on the expertise of both parties. First released in 2002 with the 2000 vintage, Caro has quickly gained a reputation as one of Argentina's icon wines.
Winemaker Notes:The wine is deep ruby in color with purple glints. The nose reveals the aroma of white pepper and figs, with perfectly integrated blueberry notes. Aging in oak barrels from the Tonnellerie des Domaines in Pauillac adds subtle notes of nutmeg to the wine. This vintage shows exceptional complexity. The fruit is bright and luminous, supported by well-integrated oak and refreshing acidity. The tannins are soft and silky and contribute to the wine’s persistence. This wine will reveal its complexity with further bottle aging. Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec.
Tim Atkin MW awarded this vintage 97 points.
