Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About d'Arenberg:

One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.
