A joint venture between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite ) and Nicolas Catena, combining there deep knowledge of Mendoza, Argentina terroir and the art of winemaking to create Amancaya a blend of Malbec 50% and Cabernet Sauvignon 50%. Reviews: 93 Points from James Suckling: "Incredibly floral and bright with dried berry, violet and lilac on the nose. Full to medium body with a beautiful texture of ripe tannins. Very polished tannins. Harmony and finesse here. Very late harvest delivered unique character." 50% aged in concrete and 50% in French barrel, 20% new.


Tasting Notes: Deep ruby color with violet hints. The nose presents aromas of cloves, white pepper, and raspberry. The sleek chocolate and tobacco finish has a pleasant racy edge. On the palate, the tannins are velvety with a long-lasting finish. Layer upon layer of refined flavors and lingering acidity can be appreciated after the bottle has been opened. This well balanced, well defined wine can be drunk now, but will open up with more time.

The success of the first vintages of CARO encouraged Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family to create another premium wine, this time a Malbec dominated cuvée, that would nevertheless be a balance between the Bordeaux and Argentine styles. To celebrate its Andean origin, the wine was named Amancaya, after the mountain flower which grows in the Andes. Located in the heart of the Mendoza region, the winery at Bodegas CARO is also at the center of the CARO project.
