Of ruby red color, the wine shows hints of mature red berries, tobacco and spices accompanied by vanilla notes coming from the aging in French oak barrels. On the nose it is both elegant and complex. This Cabernet is a, mouth filling wine showing good structure with very soft tannins due to an optimal grape picking time at the vineyards. The wine is ready to be enjoyed now and has a cellaring potential of 10+ years.
Nice color, some nose and very strong spicy up front. Finish is unremarkable. Good eating with strong tasting foods.

Wine Maker Notes
It was precisely the wines of Argentina that attracted Montes into that country. For that same reason we imposed upon ourselves, right from the start, in 2001, the task of acquiring for KAIKEN the best grapes produced in the area. We went through all the best grape producing estates, finally deciding for the exceptional quality of that in the First Zone (Maipú, Cruz de Piedra, Ugarteche, Agrelo) as well as from Valle de Uco. Along with a hard selection of the best producers, we meticulously supervise each step and work in the vineyard from start to finish of each growing season, observing well each little detail. This, to attain the full potential from the best grapes.
