Gold Medal for 2015 Kaiken Ultra Malbec at the 2017 Texsom International Wine Awards

24 March, 2017

Now in its 33rd year, the Texsom International Wine Awards has grown to become one of the most important wine challenges in the United States, with a great reputation among sommeliers and retailers.

This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes —a clear expression of a cool year— intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety’s great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.
