Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A bottle consumed on Jan 6th/18 at home birthday dinner for ET. Unfortunately, not as well enjoyed as would normally be the case. However, it was a lovely cab and still have another bottle!

2nd bottle consumed on April 8th/18 for Maureen's birthday dinner. Served with ribs and all the fixin's. Tasty cab enjoyed with the ribs and a bit of hard cheddar and bread on the side!
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted March 7th 2017, opened before dinner nice dark cherry and spice notes.
Nice flavours on the palate. Easy to drink. Soft tannins and a nice finish. Great price at 12.95. Great table wine. Burger wine. Was nice with smoked cheddar and crackers.

Natalie's Review

Kaiken Terroir Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Mendoza, Argentina: Produced by Montes, this is savoury, dark plum and cedar brush nose on this full-bodied well-priced Argentine red wine blend. Lots of mocha and dark chocolate on the nose and palate from generous oak aging. this wine was matured in oak barrels for 10 months, both new and used French oak. Pair with chorizo sausages or jambalaya. Drink: 2016-2018. 384305 14.50% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 90/100. July 23, 2016 Top Rated Red Wine. Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
