“The Lafite of Argentina! • "Very sophisticated."”

Baron de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolas Catena Collaboration

By David Gettenberg

What happens when a First Growth Bordeaux family (Rothschild of Chateau Lafite) makes a red blend with Argentina's Malbec master, Nicolas Catena?

You get one amazing red wine!

Meet Caro, a blend of 83% Cabernet and 17% Malbec, a true lovechild between the best elements of France and Argentina.

These two grapes thrive in the high altitude and sunshine of Argentina; together, this Bordeaux blend is of unparalleled expression.

What We Love About This Wine

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 lasts 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!
