Kaiken

Okay.... We have a Malbec with a funky name that makes you think of the Mapuche tribes, a blurb on the label about a wine that "combines the best of both sides of the Andes (Chile and Argentina)" and a $14 price tag. We got our expectations up. And this wine has a wonderful boquet and is complex and... just doesn't deliver the goods. It's a beautiful sports car with no engine under the hood. Man! We really wanted this one to be a superstar... Next!
