Bright red-ruby. Subtle, fresh and wonderfully aromatic nose offers complex scents of redcurrant, blueberry, strawberry, tobacco, mocha, graphite, leather and cedar. Penetrating and claret-like, with superb delineation to the redcurrant and tobacco flavors. Perfectly integrated acidity and an intriguing herbal nuance give this wine a light touch. Finishes with tactile, dusty tannins and lovely lift and persistence. Offers compelling complexity and class for the price. This is actually the second wine issued by this joint venture between Lafite-Rothschild and Nicolas Catena: the 2007 flagship bottling had not yet arrived in the market at press time.

Sweet and open on the nose, with blackberry and pure grape aromas. The palate has a tight, drawing texture but rewarding flavors of spice and roasted berry fruit. Long and flavorful on the finish, with bite and tannic residue. A wine with positive components but a rough young feel.

Full ruby-red. Complex, Medoc-like nose combines redcurrant, nutty oak, leather, tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Supple and suave, with a restrained sweetness and a fine-grained texture. The broad tannins reach the teeth. Showing a bit less energy and nuance than the 2008 at the same stage, but this is pliant and well-made wine.

Amancaya is a second wine for Caro, a blend of 55 percent malbec and 45 percent cabernet sauvignon. Young and tough, it shows the darker side of the Andes with coal and black cherry aromas over dense black fruit and hard tannins. Two hours later, the malbec side begins to dominate with lovely cherry notes and floral aromas.

Overtly toasty, but with a core of plum, cassis and anise. The finish shows fruitcake and toast notes, with a slightly firm edge. Should soften with brief cellaring. Not the usual house style. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Concentrated and focused, with alluring cedar and roasted vanilla notes weaving through the dark currant and plum fruit, followed by a nicely structured finish. More like Cabernet than Malbec. Rock-solid. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2010.
