Its purple, almost blue color, showcases blueberries and cassis notes accompanied by elegant violet and moka aromas
On the mouth it is intense and powerful, showing the gentle and sweet tannins, characteristic of the Malbec variety and Kaiken's winemaking style
This wine has a unique balance between alcohol and acidity, achieved due the high thermal amplitude of the higher winemaking zones in Mendoza and Uco Valley (1,000 meters above sea level).
"The 2006 Ultra Malbec was aged for 12 months in French oak. The oak influence is apparent in the attractive perfume which also has notes of violets, black cherry and a hint of chocolate. This is followed by a structured wine that will benefit from 2-3 years of additional bottle age. The fruit is mouth-filling and has good depth and the firm finish lasts for more than 45 seconds"
The Wine Advocate
"Ripe and solid, with a nice range of blueberry, fig and boysenberry fruit layered with sweet toast that carries through on the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
bitter tasting....no fruits or good tannens to combat the leather
