Kaiken Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Vistalba District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaUltra is, perhaps, an unfortunate name. This isn't a supercharged cabernet. There's a freshness to the fruit, and even some red fruit character, that's complemented by muddled herbs and spicy oak. It's not overly complex, and the cheaper Selección may even be more expressive, but there's definitely more concentration and higher quality oak here. The other key difference: this will show better with some time in the cellar. Today, it's calling for grilled steak.Tasted: 21 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.15 select private retailers AB 25.00 select private retailers ON 19.95 LCBO Producer: Montes WinesDistributors: Trajectory Beverage Partners
