This is one of the most direct and clear Caros in a long time with blue-fruit, violet and sandalwood aromas and flavors. Crushed-stone, too. Full-bodied, yet tight and contracted with a level of shyness to its strength. The length derives from the excellence of the cabernet. One for the cellar. Blend of 74% malbec and 26% cabernet sauvignon. Try after 2023, but exciting to drink all the same.~J.S.

The path taken over the years by CARO, a joint venture between Catena and Rothschild, has seen some interesting turns, shifting from Lujan de Cuyo to the Uco Valley. Today, it is a blend of 74% Malbec and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon from Paraje de Altamira, aged for 12-18 months in French barrels. Bordeaux in style it is bright purple in the glass and dominated in this instance by elegant woody flavors, revealing hints of plum and violet along with touches of orange petit-fours and bell pepper for complexity. Juicy and malleable, with a texture kept gently in check by active tannins, it delivers a cleansing finish of mint and herbs. A wine with precisely defined flavors in which each detail has been considered art length. Perfectly balanced for cellar aging.~J.H.

Wine Spectator 92
An elegant style, with juicy richness to the mineral-infused dried red fruit and berry flavors. Vibrant acidity lingers on the burnished finish, with savory accents. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2026. 3,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.~K.M.

Wine and Spirits Magazine 92
The flagship wine of the partnership between Catena and the French firm Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), this is an ambitious blend of malbec and cabernet (74/26) aged a year and a half in barrels, 60 percent new. Its smooth and polished, with the sweet, nutty richness of Nutella and a fruit-compote intensity.


Wine Advocate 91
...Matured in French oak barrels, 80% of them new, for 18 months. It has notes of ripe black fruit, licorice and a touch of earth, leather and graphite. The palate reveals some astringency and a dry finish...~L.G.
About Bodegas Caro
CARO was born of the 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. 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 a unique wine: CARO. Two noble grapes, two families, one dear and elegant wine.
