This really does taste like the lovechild of Bordeaux and Mendoza. Elegant, balanced, and big delivery!

2002- hanging in there pretty well. Seems more Cabby than Malbec. Really lovely and seamless.

Pleasantly surprised, reminds me of some high end Napa cabs - dialed in, a tight product. Tobacco with stunning complexity.

Not flawed but horrible. Lots of volatile acid that once it blew off made it's way to the mid palate. Fruit completely dropped off and no finish. I had high expectations. Big disappointment.

Aromas were a hit muted at first but did open up with time. Fruits and acid blended nicely to round out the characteristics. What I really liked was it did have a nice depth of characteristics both fruity and earthy.

CARO, alliance between 2 wine cultures (French and Argentine), 2 noble grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec), and 2 wine families (Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolas Catena). Blend of 75% Malbec & 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Complex aromas of dark berry fruits, smoke and earthy spice. On palate blackberry, raspberry and sweet cherry, cedar, nuts and burnt cacao. Developed tannins, well balanced on lingering finish ending with espresso and mineral tones. Great but keep in Cellar for few years.

A big and concentrated 60% Malbec and 40% CS blend that shows its finesse and well rounded characters on the palate. Tobacco, incense, black fruits, earth, spice with abundance but well integrated oak. Long and bright spicy finish.

Caro means expensive in Spanish, but For $50, I would consider this money well spent.

From Argentina, this half Can half Malbec has notes of sweet tobacco, black raspberry and mocha. Medium tannin and a peppery acidity. #caro #mendoza #argentina #baronsderothschild #lafite
