Kaiken Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Kaiken Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon Ultra was hand-picked, in April into 15kg-trays to preserve the berries, which were then selected manually in the winery to ensure removal of any foreign particles capable of affecting final product quality. Must was fermented in small tanks under optimum conditions preserving vineyard character and qualities.

VINTAGE: 2016

VARIETALS: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

APPELLATION: Vistalba-Luján de Cuyo-Mendoza

AGING: 12 months in French oak

ALCOHOL: 14.5%

TASTING NOTES:

Vibrant deep red color so typical of this variety, this wine displays great elegance and balance in the nose. Ripe fruit aromas evoke prunes, strawberries, and cherries intertwined with spicy notes, such as black pepper, tobacco, and sweet red pepper. The palate reveals an exceptionally powerful wine with the characteristic round and opulent tannins from grapes grown in Vistalba’s unique terroir. A pleasant and persistent finish displays more red fruit notes, but this time intertwined with vanilla and chocolate from oak aging.
