It was precisely the wines of Argentina that attracted Montes into that country. For that same reason we imposed upon ourselves, right from the start, in 2001, the task of acquiring for KAIKEN the best grapes produced in the area.

It was precisely the wines of Argentina that attracted Montes into that country. For that same reason we imposed upon ourselves, right from the start, in 2001, the task of acquiring for KAIKEN the best grapes produced in the area. We went through all the best grape producing estates, finally deciding for the exceptional quality of that in the First Zone (Maipú, Cruz de Piedra, Ugarteche, Agrelo) as well as from Valle de Uco. Along with a hard selection of the best producers, we meticulously supervise each step and work in the vineyard from start to finish of each growing season, observing well each little detail. This, to attain the full potential from the best grapes. Read less

After decanting for 15 minutes, toffee and caramel notes become obvious. After a half hour, a surprising rhubarb note. This thing just keeps opening up! Give it a chance. It's much better than a 3 our of 5.

After decanting for 15 minutes, toffee and caramel notes become obvious. After a half hour, a surprising rhubarb note. Cigar notes on the cork. This thing just keeps opening up! Sorry, but it's much better than a 3 out of 5.

Deep colour, on the nose the alcohol is strong and not a lot of fruit comes through in the nose - some dark berry. Very dry lots of tannins that linger - Blackberry with a very mild hint of mocha and some oak.

KAIKEN Malbec, Reserve: Of a deep violet color, warm in the nose, with notes of ripe fruit and traces of tobacco and butterscotch. In the mouth it displays intensity, with strong, fleshy tannins; while at the same time juicy and enveloping; with a long, persistent finish. A harmonious liaison with the wood, makes of this wine a fine example of the Mendoza terroir.

Kaiken Malbec presents a vivid ruby red color with purple hues. On the mouth, mature red fruits and chocolate are vividly present, mixing harmoniously with the oak, while violet aromas enhance the wines complexity on the nose. A velvety wine, with excellent structure and abundant, mature tannins providing unequaled silkiness. The wine is a faithful exponent of Malbecs potential in Argentina, with unique characteristics, blending both intensity and softness along with a long and persistent finish.

Handsome ruby red color. Outstanding and concentrated fruit, with beautiful aromas of red berries, black cherry and hints of tobaccos. A full-bodied wine. Round and velvety in mid-palate, with soft tannins. An added touch of vanilla and toast, followed by a long and smooth finish. Very, very elegant.
