Caro was born of an alliance between two wine cultures
(French and Argentine), two noble grape varieties
(Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec), and two renowned wine
families (Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and
Vignerons since the 19th century, these two powerful
organizations have combined their deep knowledge of Mendoza’s
high altitude terroir and the art of winemaking to create

This 50/50 Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec
blend has a wonderful, deep purple-red color. Intense
aromas of red and black
on the nose, with notes of cedar, vanilla and
tobacco, slightly minty and well integrated. Full on
