Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

North of Santiago, Chile, this vineyard lies under the coastal winds of the Pacific in a climate well suited for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark fruit in the aromas, this wine is still aging with strong acidity and tannins. A spicy finish. A couple of more years in the cellaror a proper decanting period, it will go well with beef, barbeque meats and hard cheeses.
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.
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.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
