"I found the 2014 Amancaya significantly cleaner and more precise than the 2013, but there is also higher ripeness, but without excess. This is significantly different from the 2013, with a profile that I prefer, even if the quality level is similar, which is very high for a wine produced in large quantities, like the 150,000 bottles of this vintage. There are some lactic aromas and the fruit seems to get more focused and the hints of ripeness receded with time in the glass."-RP

"Lovley aromas of walnut, almond, plum and orange peel. Very aromatic. Full body, fine and silky with lovely citrus fruit and a long and focused finish. Linear and bright. A blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold."~JS
"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. As a commemoration to the Andean roots, the Indian name of a pretty little flower, which grows on the high altitude of the Andes has been chosen: Amancaya.
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 truly unique wine."-Winery Notes
