2018 Bodegas Caro - Amancaya Malbec/Cabernet

From two legendary winemaking families
Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite and the Catena created 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.
We scored an amazing wine at an amazing price!

2018 Bodegas Caro - Amancaya Malbec/Cabernet...$14.99
Was $19.99

This shows blackberry, tobacco, coffee and iodine aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Polished, yet happily dense with creamy tannins and a long, savory finish. So drinkable now, but will improve with age. 70% malbec 30% cabernet sauvignon.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
