Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
A deep cherry-red in colour, while the nose offers up aromas of red and black fruits such as raspberry, cherry, cassis, blackberry, plum, and blueberry, all blended with delicate notes of cigar box, tobacco, and vanilla that develop while aging in oak barrels. The palate has tremendous volume and high intensity flavours that reflect the ample aromatic profile perceived the nose, particularly black fruits and roasted notes with a touch of mint that lend complexity to the entire blend. Elegant and complex, this is a juicy Cabernet Sauvignon with great structure, soft tannins, and a long, lingering finish.- Arboleda Winery
Lots of Tobacco on the nose, bleeding into black cherries with slight woody must. Straight forward fruit, with a little depth. Mostly currant, cherries with firm tannins and a decent, albeit not long finish.
