Kaiken Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense ruby red color with violet hues. On the nose, it features great complexity where the Cabernet spiciness blends perfectly with mature fruit, allowing plum and cherry aromas to stand out. Its oak aging contributes by adding complexity and sophistication to the wine. On the mouth, it’s a very powerful wine, with subtle tannins. Long finish, where fruit flavors dominate and blend perfectly with the sweet notes provided by its oak aging. Goes with strong flavored foods like lamb, beef and pork meats.

Chile's Aurelio Montes went into Argentina because of its grapes. From the start, Kaiken searched for the best grapes in Mendoza, instead of worrying about big investments in land and winery. This has enabled Kaiken to “map” all the quality-producing areas in Mendoza: 1st Zone (Maipú, Cruz de Piedra, Ugarteche, Agrelo) and the Uco Valley.
To obtain grapes of real quality, Kaiken has changed the traditional way of buying grapes in Argentina. They have entered into contracts with top producers with much anticipation. Seasonal works are closely supervised and the resulting low yields are also closely controlled. The producers are compensated by paying considerably above market price for their premium grapes. This has resulted in having large number of quality producers wanting to work with Kaiken, enabling Kaiken to select the best amongst them.
This wine is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec.
