Winemaker Notes

This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes - a clear expression of a cool year - intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety’s great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.

Serve at 59°-63°F (15°-17°C) with casserole or not too elaborate red meat dishes or just enjoy with ripe cheese. Store in a cool (<59ºf;><15ºc) and dry place, protected from direct light exposure.>

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling

A soft and round-textured red with stones and blackberries. Full body, subtle chocolate and berry character and hazelnut undertones. Turns rich on the finish. A blend of top vineyards.

COMMENTARY: The Kaiken Ultra Malbec has been one of my favorite wines for nearly a decade. The 2016 vintage is a lovely example of why so many wine drinkers are so enamored with this grape variety from Argentina. TASTING NOTES: This wine explodes with ripe black fruit and nicely accented with a nice touch of oak. Its richness should pair it well with a nicely grilled, well-marbled ribeye. (Tasted: March 25, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Kaiken Winery Video

The Kaiken Winery was built in 1920 by Italo Calise. In those early days, the winery also made olive oil, distilled beverages, and tartaric acid. Today, the winery has the capacity to make 7 million liters of wine. Fermentation takes place in 12,000-30,000 liter tanks, which are ideal for small batches of superior quality wine.

 The Caiquen is a wild goose from Patagonia that flies across The Andes between Argentina and Chile. By embarking on this cross-border flight the Caiquen takes up a major challenge. Just like the Caiquen, Aurelio Montes, founder of the Chilean winery Bodega Montes, made several trips across the Andes until, in 2000 he rediscovered Mendoza as a generous land filled with superb vines and hardworking people. In 2001, he realized Mendoza was the perfect place to make Kaiken Wines, wines that embody everything a great wine ought to be.
