Reviews and Ratings

SINGLE VINEYARD / 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. MINE: Arboleda 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. OTHER: 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. OTHER: 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. OTHER: Blackcurrants and fresh herbs such as basil on the nose. Medium body, firm and silky tannins. Subtle complexity. Understated. Drink now. Score - 92 (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, March 16, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
