This wine is improving with bottle age and is drinking beautifully now (Feb 2014). Better than even a few months ago. Rich red and black fruits, nice mouthfeel and a smooth finish. Very tasty.

Light, transparent, not inky like many other Malbecs. Retains dark fruit and subtle oak. Hot.

Nice start, good mouthfeel, let's up a bit on the finish. Price up $2 since last vintage. Hmm. #Chakana # Malbec

Chakana is great. This one is a Malbec, not a blend. Worth every penny.

Very inviting purple hue in the glass with rich red berries and spice on the nose. Chewy tannins and a long finish.

Dark ruby. Pickled cukes, red blossom on nose. Dill attack goes towards garrigue, with ripe sweet red cherry. Nice/nice

The Kysela rep was very stingy in his pouring, so hard to give a full assessment. Generally inky and balanced.
