Caro Amancaya 2011

SKU 02920


Deep crimson colour. The nose presents aromas of red and black fruit, with redcurrants and plums, and a little mint and cedar. The bouquet fills out with notes of vanilla, spices and mocha from the French oak. On the palate, the tannic texture is pleasant and well balanced. The tannins are refined and gentle. There is a pleasant sensation of softness in the mouth. This is a deep, flavourful wine which can be drunk now but which will reveal more of its character in three to five years.

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.
