The 2004 Coppermine Road, one of D'Arenberg's flagship icon reds, is a complex and full bodied wine dominated by red fruits, blueberry, cranberry, cedary cinnamon spice and earth. Vibrant aromas of cassis, blackcurrant, and plum harmonize with the well structured palate. With bottle age, this wine will gain more complex characters of chocolate, truffle, cigar box and earth but maintains its seamless rolling finish.
"A wine of exceptional concentration and power; very good cassis blackcurrant fruit; luscious, but not over the top. Screwcap."
Australian Wine Companion
"The backward, opaque inky/purple-colored 2004 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon offers up scents of blueberries, graphite, black currants, and background oak as well as licorice. Espresso and chocolate aromas also emerge as the wine sits in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, and chewy, this structured 2004 is best cellared for several years, and consumed over the following 12-15."
The Wine Advocate
"Saturated ruby. A lush, fruit-forward rendition of textbook cabernet aromas: cherry, plum, cigar box, tobacco, mint, anise and musky underbrush. Lush, supple and almost sweet in its red fruit expression, with rounded, suave tannins supporting the ripe redcurrant flavors. Really expands on the finish, picking up a darker note of blackcurrant and a hint of bitter chocolate. The balance of fruit and tannins is impressive."
