Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Of purple color, our Kaiken Ultra Malbec combines notes of figs and wild flowers, finely blended with the elegance of the French oak

On the mouth it is an intense and powerful wine, showing the gentle and sweet tannins, characteristic of the Malbec variety and Kaiken's winemaking style. Its aftertaste showcases violet hints provided by the fruit of our Agrelo vineyard.

A bold Malbec that shows a unique balance between alcohol and acidity, product of the wide thermal amplitude found in the highest zones of Mendoza and Uco Valley (1,000 m.a.s.v / 3,280 feet above sea level)

Critical Acclaim

"A big, full-bodied Malbec with charm. The nose is toasty, with black fruit, chocolate and other stocky, earthy aromas. Saturated in the mouth, with concentrated black fruit flavors. Shows touches of mint and spice on the finish along with coffee, licorice and chocolate. Drink now through 2012."

Very nice Malbec. Lots of dark fruits, good mid-palate, oak, and integrated tannins. Nose opened up nicely second day. Bit more fruit on the palate second day. Good QPR. Will buy again.
