A high altitude Malbec with more density and structure than juiciness. Still young and a safe bet to hold for a couple more years at least.

This is the way Malbec should be. Good balance and body. Great fruit and complexity.

I recently picked this up off of Last Bottle. Really nicely developed Malbec. Classic old style Malbec. I imagine the rough edges will smooth out with more time in the bottle. (Not sure why the photo came out with such a squatty bottle).

16.5/20 (90/100) Топовое вино Kaiken, виноград с 125-летних лоз. Плотное, джемовое: черничного варенья, чернослива, ванили и чёрного шоколада. Умеренная кислотность и интенсивные, обволакивающие, «ватные» танины. Вкус строже, чем аромат. Легкая солоноватость. Мальбек в стиле «дорого-богато».
