External Reviews for Kaiken Ultra Malbec Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza
A big and mauling version of Malbec. The nose is minty and dark, while the palate runs syrupy and full, with heavy black-fruit flavors darkened even more by a persistent peppery streak.
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.
Good loam and cocoa notes, with mineral, sanguine, currant preserve and pepper flavors. Smoky finish has a nice tug of earth, but also plenty of fruit. Drink now through 2007.
This has a solid core of raspberry and macerated cherry fruit, laced with a bright floral hint and a lively mineral note that helps extend the finish. Very tasty.
Winemaker Notes - 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.
Duft: Noten von Kirschen, Schokolade und Veilchen, Geschmack: Nach Gewürzen und reifen roten Früchten. Im Gaumen fein und verführerisch, reichhaltig an feinen Tanninen.
The 2009 Malbec contains 7% Cabernet Sauvignon in its makeup and saw 60% of the wine aged in French oak for 6 months. Aromas of cedar, spice box, and cherry cola lead to a rather stolid, standard quality wine that should be consumed over the next 2andndash;3 years.
