Montes 'Kaiken' Malbec 2011

Member Review by Substantive Style:

Haven't had the 2011 but I have been a big fan of the Kaiken in general over the years. Nice mid-level Malbec. And as others mentioned like most Malbecs I've had, helps to let them breath a bit before drinking

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.

Agree on the time to let breath. A Venturi helped with this one. Slight tang and otherwise rich fruit flavors. Get the ultra if possible.

Vanilla, violets, blackberry and plum tie together to create an exciting and aromatic nose on this wine. And the flavors are just as fabulous, with plum, blackberry and dark chocolate adding some complexity.
