Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89

($65) Saturated ruby-red. Aromas of currant, graphite, tobacco leaf, coconut and herbs. Sweet, fat and lush, with a light cabernet herbaceousness contributing to the wine's complexity. Finishes with palate-coating, slightly dry-edged tannins and very good length.

The 2002 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a sweet perfume of roasted herbs, black currants, blackberries, lead pencil shavings, and background oak. Full-bodied and structured, it is just a notch below the quality of the 2003.

Firm, with a velvety feel to the fairly dense blackberry, currant and mint flavors, finishing with a mild bite of tannins.

About This Producer


In 1984, head winemaker Chester d'Arenberg Osborn, the fourth generation d'Arenberg to work the estate, ambitiously began revitalizing the old vineyards and cellars, investing in improvements that would propel the winery into the next century. White wine production began, to complement the winery's existing production of Shiraz, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, among other varieties. Being blessed with excellent McLaren Vale location, d'Arenberg strives to create wines that reflect the land's natural bounty. All their wines are fermented and produced in small batches, providing a larger pool of blending options for each final bottling. The winery's operation is truly "estate" from vineyard to bottle, quite an affair when over 30 different wines are produced each vintage. D'Arenberg is well-known for its The Dead Arm Shiraz, and produces two other "Icon" level wines from the oldest vines and best barrels: The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon and The Ironstone Pressings Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre.
