A beefy and concentrated wine with bold blue fruits. The wine was tightly wound at first but opened up attractively in the glass showing some fun aromas. Lacked structure on the palate. #kaiken #montes #argentina #mendoza #malbec

Beautifully balanced, light enough to sip but bold enough to leave a lasting impression.

Black licorice, black fruits, slate, a bit of sage, a bit of menthol. Slightly grippy tannins and medium acidity. As usual a good value! Short finish.

Medium body and tannins overlay deep red fruit, blueberry, and spice tones with an somewhat acidic mouthfeel. Paired well with pork and scalloped potatoes.

Quite nicely balanced tannins and fruit with chocolate undertone. A few more years will improve it.

Very smooth malbec. Tasting red berries on this one with nice lingering tannins.
