Kaiken 2011 Terroir Series, Corte Red Blend, Mendoza
Kaiken's Terroir Series of special wines demonstrates Argentina's viticultural history and distinctive varieties, through attractive and innovative blends of grapes sourced from the best terroirs. This is a sumptuous blend of Malbec(80%) with Bonarda(12%) and Petit Verdot(8%) each sourced from a Unique Terroir. Uco Valley for the Malbec, the Bonarda from Kaiken's Agrelo Estate, and the Petit Verdot is from the zone of Gualtallary. This wine features appealing fresh fruit aromas, and complexity on the palate enhanced by ten months' aging in French oak and six months' in bottle. Wine Spectator said "A dark, round red, with jammy black plum fruit, spice and a hint of tobacco on the broad finish. Drink now."
