    "A juicy and fruity cabernet with hints of fresh herb and cedar. Medium body, lovely fruit and a soft finish. I like the currant and plum character. Drink now." ~ James Suckling

    Beef sliders with sautéed onions and horseradish mayo. Lollipop lamb chops charred on the grill. Summer tomato meat sauce over spaghetti. These are just a few things that come to mind as companions for the Kaiken Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a gorgeous value that will pair beautifully with meaty hot weather fare, day in and day out.  Ready. Set. Pour.

    Winery:  "Our Kaiken Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was made for everyday drinking. It presents tremendous fresh-fruit expression and extraordinarily smooth tannins, that make it a very versatile wine for pairing with a wide variety of dishes. It is deep ruby-red in color, with medium- to-high aromatic intensity that offers a wide range of fruity aromas, predominantly fresh red fruits intermingled with notes of eucalyptus and menthol. The characteristic flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon are accentuated by an uncommon and extraordinary softness that reflects the typicality of Agrelo's unique, distinctive terroir."
