Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon

Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Valle del Maipo, Region del Valle Central, ChileThe '99 Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon is what the Arboleda wines are all about - appellation. In this case the cabernet made in the picture perfect '99 vintage comes off the Los Morros Estate in Maipo. Look for gobs of attractive, rich, blackberry and cassis jam aromas and fruits with smoky sweaty leather overtones. Similar flavours mark this medium-weight, chewy red with earthy tobacco streaks in the finish. Delicious now but should easily hold another five years.Tasted: 15 November 2002Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.95 Private Wine Stores Producer: ViƱa ArboledaDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
