Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine has milk chocolate, fleshy plums, camphor, dried purple flowers, fresh herbs and a hint of baking spice. This wine will do better in 2018. 90 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Kaiken's Las Rocas Ultra (2015) is a big, robust and fleshy Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. The Ultra Malbec is Kaiken's flagship Malbec, made by iconic winemaker Aurelio Montes. 'Las Rocas' are the rounded stones found in the vineyard. Drink now or cellar. - Community Wine Reviews
