D'Arenberg Cabernet Sauvignon the Coppermine Road 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine gathers its name from a road nearby d’Arenberg, Coppermine Road that runs parallel to our very best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in McLaren Vale. The grapes for this wine come largely from a near extinct clone of Cabernet Sauvignon. This unnamed clone yields no more than one tonne per acre because of its very poor setting ability and the tiny size of its berries. However, the quality of the grapes is far superior, with wonderful violet and blackcurrant aromas, great acidity and long, intense fine-grain tannins. This wine has a deep, dark, vibrant black appearance suggesting a full-bodied dry red. The aroma is dense and complex with a mix of fragrant fruit dominated by cassis, blackcurrants, mulberries, coffee, toffee and dark chocolate with fine cedar oak developing in the background. The palate shows a lighter, fresher, more elegant style of wine compared to recent vintages but is overwhelmingly complex and compressed. Young primary flavours of dark black fruits, violets, cassis and red currants mixed with edges of dried herbs, green bean and capsicum dominate. As the wine opens up an abundant mix of violets, earthy notes and mulberries appear over dark fruits with really tight flowery tannins and minerals that fan out on the finish.
