We selected our Arboleda 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon from the finest grapes of the exceptional Los Morros Estate in the Maipo Valley. This beautiful valley, located just south of Santiago and at the foot of the Andes, has been renowned for top-quality Cabernet for over one hundred years. Our Arboleda wines, and our new, state-of-the-art, gravity-flow winery and high-density vineyards in the Colchagua Valley, are symbols of our complete commitment to winemaking in Chile. Our premiere release of Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the long, cool growing season of the 1998 vintage with elegance and complexity. The wine is intensely red with purplish rims; its aroma is both balanced and complex. Exquisite aromas of blackberry, black currant and rosehip jam display in perfect balance with complex nuances of chocolate and leather. On the palate, the wine displays fruitiness and a solid structure, the supple and round tannins being typical for a cool vintage. The long lasting blackberry jam gives way to lingering elegant dried fruit and tobacco flavors.
