Kaiken 2012 Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza) Argentina
Availability: Special order, private wine stores
Cost: $24.99 + taxes
Date Tasted: May 19th, 2017
Tasting Notes: An ultra smooth Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Malbec blended in to contribute lifted blackberry aromas and flavours to the, otherwise, serious black fruit proceedings. Cassis and blueberry fruit lead the way with plenty of support from the spicy and savoury affects of 12 months prior in French oak barrels prior to bottling.
Offers, fine tannins and lively acid on the palate with a touch of smoke and spice that linger on the moderate-plus finish. Manages its 14.5% alcohol superbly. Starting to peak and ready to go now or over the next 2 years. Drink now-2019.
