Kaiken Ultra Cab ’06 $19 Argentina

kaiken

This is almost all cab 4% malbec thrown in, since they make a pretty good malbec.

Deep red cherry nose, its subtle though. On the palate you get the berry, some tobacco flavors, casis. Its doing a good job of tasting like a cab, NOT from Agentina. I find it easy to drink as did those around me. Poured straight from the bottle and it was nice so don’t worry if you order it out. Put it through the Vinturi and it really opened up the fruit flavors. I think decanting would be good if you have one, or the Vinturi makes it easy.

The finish I thought was a nice tannic feel in the mouth, did not hang around long enough for me. I would have preferred a bit more in the body of the wine too. But for $20 I think this is a nice wine.
