Kaiken Malbec 2007 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 89/100Vintages Wine Panel: Owned by the Chilean winery, Montes, Kaiken (pronounced Kay-ken) is named for a wild goose that flies a migratory pattern between Chile and Argentina (thus the winery’s slogan, “The Best From Both Sides of the Andes”). This bold Malbec features attractive aromas of blueberry, black raspberry, spice box, chocolate and sandalwood. It’s dry, medium-bodied with fresh fruit flavors balanced by decent acidity and ripe tannins. A fantastic value. My note: A thoroughly hedonistic wine with rich aromas of mulberry, blueberry, plum, fig and anise. A warm-hearted, full-bodied wine that’s perfect for casual gatherings.
Malbec food pairings: roasted or grilled lamb, thyme and rosemary stuffing, roast turkey, roast beef.
