This is an elegant and well-balanced wine with a deep cherry-red color. The nose offers aromas of red and black fruits, such as black currant, blueberries, and strawberries, interlaced with notes of spices, smoke, and tobacco, and a light balsamic note that recalls bay leaf. The medium-bodied palate offers flavors that follow the nose along with soft tannins and fresh acidity that stimulates a juicy sensation that leads to a long and persistent finish. This blend of noble characteristics suggests the excellent cellaring potential for this Cabernet Sauvignon.
Viña Arboleda was founded in 1999 by the Chilean vintner Eduardo Chadwick. The philosophy behind this project is to craft single-vineyard wines that reveal the purest expression of each unique terroir within its vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley. Arboleda, which means a grove of trees, is a tribute to the more than 1,450 hectares (3,583 acres) of native forest that surround its sustainably managed vineyards.
