Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2018

Agrelo District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis shows deeply concentrated dark berry fruits that harmoniously balance the cedar spice from aging 12 months in French oak. It's more medium-bodied and juicy than you'd expect from the level of fruit ripeness on the nose, though it still checks in at a warming 14.5% abv. The tannins are velvety, and slightly powdery on the finish, making this approachable now. Like Kaiken's Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon, this is not wildly complex, but it's clearly well made and fine value for the price.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.00 select private retailers AB 22.00 select private retailers ON 19.00 LCBO Producer: Montes WinesDistributors: Trajectory Beverage Partners
