Kaiken Malbec 2009
The wine presents an vivid ruby red color with purple hues. On the mouth, red fruits and elegant spicy touches enhance its complexity, mixing harmoniously with the oak. Soft and silky on the mouth, where the wine’s fruit intensity is instantly recognizable, blending perfectly with the oak ageing. Its unique structure, due to the maturity and softness of its tannins, provides a long and persistent finish.
