  • Intense purple. The nose shows aromas of black fruits and spices such as black pepper and paprika as well as notes of rosemary, black olives, incense, and cigar box. The spices appear first, followed by the black fruit along with notes of fresh-roasted coffee and just a hint of dark chocolate. This is an ample and lush wine with good acidity that lends nerve. Very fine tannins caress the palate on a long finish with very good persistence.

By this time, the harvest in Aconcagua Costa, which started on February 11, was at full speed and was completed in a record lapse of just 45 days, in benefit of preserving the aromas and acidity of the wines. In general, the vintage delivered good yields, although some varieties registered lower yields than our estimations, such as the decrease of 17% for Cabernet Sauvignon from Aconcagua Inland, 10% for Merlot, 6% for Malbec and 4% for Sauvignon Blanc. In all, a dry and healthy year, warmer than historical averages, with November and February as the hottest months, giving way to an early vintage. The quality of our vineyards was demonstrated once again given the climatic fluctuations, droughts, and high temperatures, delivering grapes of outstanding sanitary conditions and great concentration.

The grapes used for KAI were selected from the best blocks of the MAX V vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley, 60 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. The region has an extended dry season with moderately warm summer days cooled by gentle evening breezes that blow into the valley from the Pacific Ocean. The MAX V vineyard is situated on an alluvial plain on the southern bank of the Aconcagua River. Because of its proximity to the river and its minimal, relatively unexposed slope, it is cooler than usual for the region. The soil is deep, with clay to clay-loam texture and a high stone content of up to 80%, which ensures excellent drainage. The subsoil, a coarse-grained alluvial terrace of the Aconcagua River, is homogeneous, with abundant, well-rounded stones
