Kaiken Obertura Cabernet Franc 2015
95pts - Decanter Magazine 'South American Premium Red Blends' Panel Tasting
"A ripe nose with aromas of dark fruits, blueberries and blackberries. On the palate, the tannins are quite firm and the oak quite dominant. However, this wins on the ever-present fruit." - Paz Levinson - 94pts, Decanter Magazine
"This seems ripe, slightly raisin, powerful with fine tannins and grip. Serious, quite high-octane style and flirts with being OTT, but nonetheless impressive and well grounded. Lovely fine-boned tannin." - Peter Richards MW - 96pts, Decanter Magazine
"On the nose it combines aromas of dark fruits ith hints of leather, dark chocolate, cedar, cigar box and exotic spices. It's round with juicy fruit, dark chocolate and savoury complexity. Powerful, showing well." - Dirceu Vianna Junior MW - 94pts, Decanter Magazine
The grapes are sourced from Valle de Uco, one of Mendoza’s most prestigious sub-regions. Kaiken’s vineyard, located in Vista Flores, sits at 1,350 metres above sea level. Here, sunny days are followed by cool nights – this slows the growing season and allows Kaiken to obtain excellent grapes with wonderful freshness. The soils are mostly alluvial and are largely made up of pebbles and rocks.
