Of ruby red color, Kaiken Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon is both an elegant and complex wine, showing hints of mature red berries, tobacco and spices accompanied by vanilla notes coming from the aging in French oak barrels.  It is a dense, mouth-filling wine showing good structure with very soft tannins.

Aromas of blackberries and dark chocolate plus hints of walnut shell. Full body, chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. Needs a year or two to soften. 91 Points.
