($65) Opaque ruby. Powerful cassis and blueberry aromas are complicated by lavender and pungent herbs. Fleshy, palate-staining dark berry flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity. Gentle tannins add grip but don't get in the way of the lush, creamy fruit. Very impressive cabernet, with the sweetness to drink on the young side but the depth and balance to reward patience.

The saturated purple 2006 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, vanilla, cinnamon, black cherry, and black currant. Impressively structured and well-balanced, this dense Cabernet demands 6-8 years of cellaring after which it will drink beautifully from 2016 to 2036.

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.
