Winemaker's Notes:

Kaiken Ultra Cabernet has an intense ruby red color. The wine showcases red fruits flavors with black cherry aromas accompanied by chocolate and spices that enhance its elegance and complexity. On the mouth, there is a unique combination between the Cabernet Sauvignon's intensity, provided by the vines located in our vineyard in Agrelo, combined by the silkiness of the tannins given by the old vines found in the first zone. This wine has a very long finish. Its aftertaste shows chocolate notes and caramelized, condensed milk (or dulce de leche) flavors.

Recommended to accompany strong flavored foods like lamb, beef and pork meats and gourmet pastas.

About Kaiken:

Lauded Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes traveled across the Andes to make these wines, just like the Kaiken bird does when it migrates.
