From the bottle:
“The native indian women of Mendoza used Amancaya, flower of the Andes, to decorate their hair in the spring.
Nicolas Catena and Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), vignerons since the 19th century have combined their deep knowledge of Mendoza’s terroir and the art of winemaking to create Amancaya.
Amancaya is a blend based on the elegant texture of Cabernet Sauvignon enhanced by the fruit of Argentinean Malbec.
Domaines Barons de Rothschild. Nicolas Catena. These are big names in the wine industry and much like the Bodegas Caro Aruma Malbec which also comes from the joint venture between these two icons, we went into this wine with a healthy dose of skepticism. So did it deliver? Let’s find out.
The 2011 Bodegas Caro Amancaya Gran Reserva begins with very expressive aromas of ripe dark fruit like blackberry, plum and raspberry plus a little leather and violets. There’s also a good dose of mint. The wine tastes super ripe and rich with fantastic spice and savory herbal notes. Smooth, silky and lush this is a big, tasty wine with a whole lot of flavor. It ends with more ripe, rich fruit plus oaky spice notes and even a nice mineral streak. Not only did this wine deliver, but you can get it delivered for free thanks to today’s special offer from a sponsor!
