Because of its good body and balanced concentration, we recommend 30-minute decanting for full display of delicious flavors and aromas. Store in a cool (59º-63ºF; 15º-17ºC) dry place protected from direct light exposure. 100% of the wine.
Deep ruby red color with pale and elegant purplish shades. The nose is complex with ripe red currant, fresh plums, and red pepper combined with spicy notes of black pepper and clover. Concentration and structure are well-balanced. In the mouth, we find freshness and acidity as well as minerality from high-altitude rocky soils. The long elegant finish displays red fruit and spicy aromas.

Kaiken Obertura is the first product of a new line of Kaiken wines that draws inspiration from Argentina’s sensuality and passion. To explore new things, to innovate, and to take up interesting challenges: these are the pillars of our philosophy. This is Kaiken’s calling and the spirit of Kaiken Obertura Cabernet Franc.
Grapes are hand-picked from our vineyards located in the designations of origin of Vista Flores, in the Uco Valley, in the Argentine province of Mendoza. This soil and high-altitude climate (marked by warm days and cool nights) allow grapes to ripe slowly and result well-balanced wines, both in the nose and the mouth.
