Kaiken:
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

A fantastic value wine. Has won many awards and has received many high ratings from numerous wine critics (not that wine critics are the be all and end all). I have thoroughly enjoyed this wine, and have cellared 5 bottles for further enjoyment over the next 3 - 5 years. You'll be hard pressed to find a wine of this quality, at this price.

Mocha, tobacco, oak! Be careful to get the real thing: Kaiken Malbec Ultra -- as opposed to just the Kaiken Malbec. Very different quality of wines! I found the 2006 Malbec Ultra outstanding for the price -- $14.99

Chocolate front? Quiet bold, lots of body. Mocha, Mocha ... to the point where we served it with Cheese and Chocolate medley postres and tart citron (did not go with tart - liquor muscat or sauterne). Chocolate, Colombian coffee, Manchego, Blue, Mature French Cheese, Olives, Nuts, Champagne grapes ... - good match. At Costco for $16.95. Rating 90/100. ? To cellar. Interesting.

This is a great buy from Argentina. Full flavor without to much fruit. Yet has a full body. I highly recommend this wine

I have to agree with what others have said before about the fruity notes. The blueberry is subtle but definitely present. Great for the value!

Its purple, almost blue color, showcases blueberries and cassis notes accompanied by elegant violet and moka aromas. On the mouth it is intense and powerful, showing the gentle and sweet tannins, characteristic of the Malbec variety and Kaikens winemaking style. This wine has a unique balance between alcohol and acidity, achieved due the high thermal amplitude of the higher winemaking zone in Mendoza.
