Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2015

Agrelo District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaKaiken Ultra is from Las Rocas vineyard, named for the countless small rocks that speckle the vineyards. The vineyards are in the process of converting to certified biodynamics. The fruit here is coming from three Uco Valley vineyards: Vista Flores at 1,400 m; Gualtallary at 1,300 m; and Altamira at 1,100 m. This was fermented and macerated for a month before one year in French barrels, one third new. Thick, dense and intense with potent blackberry, ripe blueberry, anise and medicinal cherry, this full bodied wine has plush tannins that hug this to the sweet and warming baking spice finish. A big, fleshy red drinking well now, and best matched with big proteins that can take on its 14.5 declared degrees.Tasted: 21 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: QC 20.00 SAQ ON 20.00 BC 31.50 private wine shops Producer: Montes WinesDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
