($65) 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.

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.

Actually, this one was surprising compared to other notes on this wine. This was kickin beyond my expectations. The cherry-berry popped in your mouth on impact. Long-finish with a hint of chocolate on the end. Maybe this crop is starting to come into his own or this is just a lucky bottle.

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.
