Bodegas Caro Amancaya 2011
International Wine CellarCrushed blackberry and a whiff of menthol on the nose. Sweet, lush and intense, with a fine-grained texture to the cassis and blackberry flavors. Finishes with broad, fine but firm tannins and noteworthy spicy length.
Wine EnthusiastFoxy berry aromas are the lead scent, and they're followed by notes of wet dog and raspberry. This is full bodied and round as a ball, with earthy, lightly herbal flavors of red berries, thyme and rosemary. A warm, loamy finish brings oaky flavors and closing weight. Drink this blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon through 2016.
Wine SpectatorThis forward, plummy red offers notes of cassis, toasty spice and licorice that fill out the slightly grippy finish. Drink now. 9,000 cases imported.
