Good full red. Aromas of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate. Juicy, spicy and a bit herbal initially, but took on a creamier texture with aeration. Still, this finishes a bit edgy.

This is the first of a new range of Kaiken wines. Corte, the Argentinean word for blend, made up of Malbec (80%), Bonarda (12%) and Petit Verdot (8%). The grapes were carefully grownadn selected by Aurelio Montes from Mendoza's premier wine regions. The Malbec contributes a soft structure and lovely aromas of violets and dry plums; the Bonarda provides a lovely nose and soft tannins and the Petit Verdot adds body. The wine has been aged in French oak for 9 months, resulting in an elegant balance between fruit and oak; a wine which is both distinctive and captivating, where all three grape varieties work in perfect harmony.
