Kaiken Cabernet Sauvignon Ultra 2016

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Darkly herbal, rich and bold aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice and creamy vanilla. Rich and fruity on entry, this presents itself confidently, with bold ripe blackberry and toasted caramel notes, earthy and oaky through the midpalate with chewy tannins drying out the sides of the mouth as the acidity keeps the palate very fresh. Finishes creamy and light despite the bold flavors throughout.

One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.

Deep ruby in color with a black berry and cherry and a hint of sweet spice on the nose. A full bodied yet elegant wine with plenty of tannin and an almost silky mouth feel, lots of blackcurrant and cherry notes, and a little sweet spice and cigar smoke in the lingering finish.

found it spicy with a bit of bite. herbal would be a good way to describe it. If I would recommend this to any food I would have to say something equally as herbally; like a salad covered with nuts or seeds of some kind.

Duft: Noten von Kirschen, Schokolade und Veilchen, Geschmack: Nach Gewürzen und reifen roten Früchten. Im Gaumen fein und verführerisch, reichhaltig an feinen Tanninen.

Dunkelvioletter Wein mit Aromen nach Johannis- und Heidelbeeren. Im Gaumen vollmundig mit guten Tanninen und lang im Abgang.

"Kaiken Ultra Cabernet has an intense ruby red color. The wine showcases red fruits flavors with black cherry aromas accompanied by chocolate and spices that enhance its elegance and complexity. On the mouth
