For its tenth anniversary, Bodegas Caro (joint venture between Domaines Barons de Rothschild and Nicolas Catena) chose to celebrate the grape that has come to symbolize Argentina's vineyards by selecting a pure Malbec: "ARUMA" meaning "the night" in the language of the Quechua, the native Indians of the Mendoza region. They chose this name because of the intense darkness of the nights in the Andes and the pure mountain air that give the wines the rich, authentic character of their terroir.
Bodegas Caro has four major Malbec vineyard terroirs, spanning the best of Mendoza and "ARUMA" is a blend of all four terroirs. Deep red color with hints of purple. The nose expresses notes of red fruit, plums, strawberries and violets combined with a subtle hint of vanilla. Intense palate with silky, well-rounded tannins. Long delicate finish. (from the vintner)
