Winemaker's Notes

This large-scaled, classic southern Australian Cabernet Sauvignon can rival the world's finest Cabernet Sauvignons. Upon release, d'Arenberg's The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep vibrant young deep red - purple colour. The nose shows intense blackcurrant fruit, cedary cinnamon spice barrel ferment & oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents as well as liquorice & chocolate smells. Primary Mulberry aromas are also evident on the palate. Combined with some blueberry, cassis and sweet rhubarb flavours dominating the typically rich & intense sweet, cedary middle palate flavours. These are followed by a typically firm but fine grained tannin extended texture overlaying soft plum and deceptively disguise the rich powerful cassis and and plum. The emphasis is on powerful full bodied varietal fruit flavour integrated with barrel fermented and matured oak in the cedary, smokey and cashew spectrum.

After time in bottle The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon should gain more chocolate, truffle and cigar box and earth aromas and flavours. Nevertheless it should maintain its freshness, persistent flavour, linear acidity and varietal tannin hold. Mushroom, black Olive, Stewed Rhubarb and cooked Beetroot may also play a part. Varietal eucalyptus and bell pepper hints may also come to the fore but be well integrated with the other developing characters, maintaining an even palate weight with a seamless & persistently rolling length.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
