2018 Bodegas Caro
A malbec that’s the result of a partnership between the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family of Argentina. Together, they’ve created a pure malbec that’s sourced from best high-altitude vineyards in the Mendoza region of Argentina. Aptly named aruma, or “the night” in the language of the region’s native population, it’s an inky red malbec that’s aged in stainless steel tanks, preserving the rich and supple dark fruit flavours, giving it elegance and depth. Good to drink now, it does contain some natural sediments, so it’s best to decant before serving. John Clarke - The Independent (Jan 2021)

The smoke, black-tea and dark-berry aromas and flavors are really impressive. Hints of coffee. Full body, firm yet lightly rounded tannins and a flavorful finish. Hard not to drink now. Pure malbec. No wood. Drink now. Rating: 93 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Apr 2020)
Started in 1993, Bodegas Caro is a joint venture between Catena and Domaines Baron de Rothschild. Christian le Sommer (ex Chateau Latour) is in charge of the winemaking. This is South American wine in a revolutionary style that is altogether more appetising than the norm.
