Natalie's Score: 90/100

A full-bodied Chilean red wine made from the classic grape Cabernet Sauvignon in the Aconcagua Valley. This wine offers enticing aromas of blackcurrant cassis along with toasty oak. There's a grip on the palate, so decant one hour and enjoy with a rare steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: beef enchiladas, barbecued ribs in sauce, hamburger, hard cheese, braised pork shanks with white beans.

Reviews and Ratings

Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The offered red at our dinner with McSheffreys and Wronas. Menu was stuffed pork tenderloin, small potatoes, and green beans.
Unfortunately felt to rushed to really enjoy the bottle. Satisfactory so we'll just mark it as a 90.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A full bodied Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon with lots of black fruit, cassis, mint, oak spice and ground black pepper. Lovely firm tannic structure, not overly complex but enjoyable just the same. Tasted November 2017.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A robust Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon from Arboleda wines. Deeply coloured and rich with fleshy dark plum, black cherry, toasted vanilla bean and dried bay leaves. Flavours don’t disappoint echoing many of the same notes with fresh greens, tobacco and stony granite minerals lingering into the medium finish. Bone dry - Acidity is medium plus with matching plush tannins. Paired perfectly with grilled steaks and mushrooms. 89 points
Arboleda (2015) is a single-vineyard Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon from the Aconcagua Valley with lots of black fruit, cassis, mint, oak spice and ground black pepper. Lovely firm tannic structure, not overly complex but enjoyable. Pair with grilled sausages. - Community Wine Reviews
