Produced by Kaiken's Aurelio Montes, this is a beautiful, sensual Cabernet Sauvignon, smooth and velvety with liquid blackberry, blueberry savoury spice, grilled herbs, dark chocolate flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm and grippy. Pair with roast venison or hold in cellar for another couple of years.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: prime rib, hearty meat stews, pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of plum, currant, blueberry, cedar, and dark chocolate. Full bodied, with some ripe fruit and a nice burst of acidity and some firm tannins that soften a bit with decanting. Mocha and blueberry on the finish. Enjoy with grilled or roasted meats.
Kaiken is the Argentine venture of Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes. Smooth and sexy, medium-plus-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with liquid blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate and savoury herb and sweet dried tobacco flavours long on the palate. Good acidity for food. Pair with grilled lamb chops. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
