THE MERCHANT'S MARK
96 / 100
"The 2016 Caro is a masterpiece. The wine exudes quality and complexity. Deep aromas of dark berries, forest floor, crushed earth, and tree bark. On the palate, the wine is soft, juicy and smooth with fine grained tannins. Amazing notes of cassis, walnut, cedar, mushroom and rose petal on a finish that went on for minutes. We love this wine! It drinks like a juicy Bordeaux. If this were from the left bank, it would be 3x the price!"
95 / 100
"Already quite open, this is a cool and slightly shy wine with ripe plum, delicate herb and toasty aromas. The rather sleek palate and fresh acidity carry the long, clean, rather stony finish. For the first time, this is dominated by 90 per cent cabernet sauvignon."
