Caro Cabernet Catena / Rothschild
$316.55 / case(6)
”caro from catena and rothschild has a strong argentine identity characterized by the malbec grape which is given further elegance and complexity through blending with cabernet sauvignon. The combination produces a voluptuous refined wine with a harmonious balance between the wine’s argentinian identity and its bordeaux style. The season was characterized by average rain in the first zone: december and february were dry with almost no rain while january was very wet with 87 mm of rain… The uco valley region experienced a normal to dry season with 38 mm less rain than the average (255 mm vs 293 mm). Winter and spring were wetter than usual while the end of season was very dry with no rain during february and march. Temperatures were within the normal range. Tasting notes (at bottling) intense ruby color. The nose recalls red and black fruit aromas mingled with hints of mocha and spices. It evolves slowly revealing layer after layer of elegant fragrances. In the mouth the acidity is refreshing and persistent. Well-balanced tannins contribute to the harmony and smoothness of the palate. We recommend serving this wine at 16°c. If there is enough time do not decant the wine in order to appreciate its slow evolution over the course of an evening. This vintage presents a good capacity to age and will open up more over time.” – bodegas caro (barons de rothschild / catena)
