Caro Red Blend 2019

Product description
Caro is an 8-hectare vineyard located in the Uco Valley close to the snow-capped Andes Mountains. This estate was born from the meeting of two emblematic families in the world of wine: the Catenas de Mendoza (CA) and the Rothschilds de Pauillac (RO) who prove that blending is not only a question of wine but also of men. On the one hand, the mastery of high-altitude terroirs and the passion for Malbec and, on the other, the deep know-how and expertise of making great Cabernet Sauvignon.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The serious, balanced and quite complete 2019 Caro was made with 64% Malbec and 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and produced in a classical style. It's a wine with ripeness, Mendoza sun and Bordeaux elegance and subtleness. It feels harmonious and integrated, with 14.5% alcohol and good balancing freshness. It matured in French barriques and 4,200-liter oak foudre for 14 months, which was a shorter élevage and using larger-volume containers to achieve neatly integrated oak. It's complex, clean and elegant, and the palate reveals a velvety texture with juicy fruit and round tannins. 31,400 bottles and 1,280 magnums were produced. It was bottled in October 2021. It's one of the finest vintages of Caro and should develop nicely in bottle.
