Juicy cassis and blackberry aomas. The wine is full bodied and full textured with a velvety palate fading into polished tannins and a classic Chilean finish with hints of tobacco and eucalyptus.
External Reviews for Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon
A polished, friendly style, with a beam of raspberry and plum fruit laced liberally with toasted vanilla. The finish is fleshy. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 400 cases imported. -JM The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon emits scents of balsam, tobacco, spice box, and blackcurrant. Medium-bodied, elegant, and racy, it reveals classic Cabernet flavors in the style of a quality Cru Bourgeois. A bit jumbled and grassy on the nose, with tobacco and red-fruit aromas filling things in. The palate is correct and solid, with medium tannins, good balance and standard flavors of cassis, raspberry, tobacco and herbs. Some heat to the finish says it needs food. Includes 8% Cabernet Franc and 7% Shiraz. - M.S.
