Kaiken Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Kaiken Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

 

All the grapes used for our Kaiken Estate Cabernet Sauvignon come from vineyards in Agrela, located 60 km from the city of Mendoza at 950 m.a.s.I. The terroir features silty-clay soils atop stones originally washed down from the Andes mountains and now buried two meters below the surface. The climate is warmer than that of the Uco Valley and it produces grapes with fruitier flavors and aromas, as well as very soft tannins.

VINTAGE: 2018

VARIETALS: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

APPELLATION: Mendoza

ALCOHOL: 14%

TASTING NOTES:

Our Kaiken Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 displays deep, ruby-red color. The nose exhibits a great array of fuity notes, among which fresh red berries stand out, intertwined with aromas of eucalyptus and menthol. In the mouth, a genuine expression of the typical flavors of a Cabernet Sauvignon is perceived, combined with unusual and extraordinary softness. These unique features result from the distinctive terroir of Agrelo, where the grapes grow.
