A single-vineyard, medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe dark plum, berries and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Smooth, elegant and a pleasure to enjoy. Arboleda was founded in 1999 by Eduardo Chadwick.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Leads with aromas of cassis, blackcurrant leaf, and toasty cocoa. Palate introduces cranberry and tart red cherry alongside good acidity and tannins. Fruits are ripe and trending toward jammy, but not over-committed as they are reigned in by the acids. Still slightly young and tight, in need of a short cellaring. Give this one to two years before making herbed lamb or grilled steaks.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Rich and vibrant, the Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, from the Aconcagua alley in Chile, reveals luxurious aromas of black plum, berry jam, black pepper, new leather, vanilla, coffee and oak. Medium-bodied with a youthful freshness, the wine shows a nice balance and a gentle finish. Palate: plum, tart cherry, dried herbs, baking spice, coffee and cedar. Enjoy.
From the Aconcagua Valley Wine Region in Chile, Arboleda 2017 is a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, lush with ripe dark fruit, black currant and garrigue herb flavours delivered on a smooth palate. Very approachable now. Pair with a grilled ribeye steak done rare. - Community Wine Reviews
