Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2015

Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2015

This Malbec shows a beautiful deep ruby color with violet hues.  On the nose, flowery and mineral notes are evident, with spicy touches that make the wine more complex and are finely blended with the elegance of the French oak.  On the mouth, it’s a wine of great structure and power – sweet plum, mocha and black cherry flavors blend with well-integrated oak and tannins that are both soft and present.  It has an outstanding balance and a very long and polished finish.

Beautiful aromas of roses, plums and blueberries. Subtle. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a clean finish. Wonderful finesse and polish. Shows the elegance of the vintage in a very positive way. Drink or hold.
