Bodegas Caro Amancaya 2018 (Argentina: Mendoza) (ID# 3889)

Name Bodegas Caro Amancaya 2018 (ID# 3889)
Varietal Malbec & Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Argentina: Mendoza
Notes "This shows blackberry, tobacco, coffee and iodine aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Polished, yet happily dense with creamy tannins and a long, savory finish." (James Suckling) "A blend of 70% Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. A dark, garnet red in color. The aromas range from plum to blackcurrant jam with hints of country herb and subtle aging notes. A French-style wine, the palate is on the skinny side with fine, slightly reductive tannins anchored in an acidity that makes for a juicy balance. This is an unusual combination for Argentina." (Vinous)

Additional Notes

"The 2018 Amancaya, a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, aims to combine the fruit and freshness of Malbec with the power and complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon. It was partly matured in oak barrels and keeps a fruit-driven and ripe profile with a soft palate with very fine tannins." (Wine Advocate)
