Kaiken Mai Malbec 2012

Kaiken Mai Malbec 2012

The Mai 2012 is astonishingly deep-red in color, with a bright ruby hue around the rim. On the nose, the wine shows multi-layered aromatic intensity that immediately engages the senses.  Notes of plum, strawberry and blueberry mingle elegantly with rosemary, tobacco and cinnamon.  The wine shows its wonderful structure, velvety tannins and length on the palate and can be laid down for up to 15 years, but it can also be enjoyed now.
