Find prices and retail availability for Caro Malbec.

By way of background: 

Initial review : This is Amancaya Bodegas Caro Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2006, finished at 14.3% alcohol.

In the glass: Deep magenta, mostly opaque.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows menthol and deep fruit. 

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact quite Aussie-like in their depth and intensity of fruit.  Very much a new world experience. Enjoyable.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for its solid, enjoyable nature.  Good value.
