Quick Sip: Bodegas Caro 2011 Amancaya Gran Reserva

Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the 2011 Amancaya Gran Reserva from Bodegas Caro. This is an Argentinian blend composed of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bodegas Caro, established in 1998, is a joint effort between distinguished wine families, Domaines Barons de Rotschild (Lafite) and the Catena family. The union marries two deeply rooted wine cultures and two noble grape varieties, delivering a rich and satisfying blend that won’t break the piggy bank.  For further information and where you can find this wine (with free shipping), please see my tasting notes below.

Review: Bodegas Caro 2011 Amancaya Gran Reserva (SRP $20): This deep ruby-purple colored blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon shows inviting aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and cassis with a faint streak of eucalyptus and subtle touches of violet and sweet spice. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a mouth-filling richness that is led by generous dark berry fruit flavors with enough acidity to support the ripeness. The wine ends in a fruit-driven, medium-length finish that is laced by accents of cocoa powder. Overall, a delicious wine that offers good QPR (Quality-Price Ratio) that is just as good on its own as it is with food. We enjoyed it with Greek-style lamb burgers. At this price, buy now, enjoy now! Region: Mendoza, Argentina.  (Other info: ABV 15%, barrel matured 12 months in new and used French oak barrels, cork enclosure.) 89 Points.
