A joint venture of Catena and Rothschild Lafite produces this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. “This 2013 is one of the best vintages of Caro, the joint venture between the Catena family of Mendoza and Lafite from Bordeaux. Half of the wine is cabernet sauvignon from Altamira, in the heights of Uco Valley, providing a firm structure, the other half is malbec from old vines in Las Campuertas, adding all the notes of violets and sour cherries that one can find in the best Luján de Cuyo malbec. The red fruit and floral notes outline the contours of a wine that seems athletic and tight rather than fat. Cellar this for five years or more; it will continue to gain in complexity.” -Rated 94, Wine and Spirits Magazine
