Cabernet Sauvignons from the Andes: Montes and Kaiken

Cabernet Sauvignons from the Andes: Montes and Kaiken
Comments : 1 Posted in : Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Wine, Wine on by : The Gourmez

My first experience with Montes and Kaiken wines came from the 2015 Wine Bloggers Conference in the Finger Lakes. That’s quite a long way from the Andes Mountains; the wineries’ extensive vineyards can be found the greater Andean regions of both Chile and Argentina, and both were founded by Aurelio Montes, Sr. At the conference,

I don’t know a lot about Washington wine. I’m aware Yakima Valley is a wine destination, because my mother lives in little Tieton to the north of Yakima itself. But my family doesn’t drink, so I’ve only gone tasting out there once. As much as I know I need to visit more wineries local to

Comments : 1 Posted in : Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Wine, Wine on by : The Gourmez

Akiyoshi Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Clarksburg, CA David Akiyoshi is one of NakedWines.Com’s go-to winemakers in California. So far, I’ve tried his 2013 Sangiovese Rosé, and it placed firmly in my second-best grouping, the Avocados. That’s a 69/100 on the Quini scale.
