D'Arenberg the Coppermine Road Mclaren Vale 2001
Upon release, d’Arenberg’s The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep vibrant young deep red - purple colour. The nose shows intense blackcurrant fruit, slight cedary cinnamon spice barrel ferment & oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents as well as liquorice & chocolate smells. Primary Mulberry aromas are also evident on the palate. Combined with some blueberry, cassis and sweet rhubarb flavours dominating the typically rich & intense sweet, cedary middle palate flavours. These are followed by a typically firm but fine- grained vibrant tannins, extended texture overlaying soft plum which deceptively disguise the rich powerful cassis and blackcurrant flavours. The emphasis is on powerful full- bodied varietal fruit flavour with totally integrated barrel fermented and oak matured characters falling into the subtle cedary, smoky and cashew spectrum. After time in bottle The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon should gain more chocolate, truffle, cigar box and earth aromas and flavours. Nevertheless it should maintain its freshness, persistent flavour, linear acidity and varietal tannin hold. Mushroom, black olive, stewed rhubarb and cooked beetroot may also play a part. Varietal eucalyptus and bell pepper hints may also come to the fore but be well integrated with the other developing characters, maintaining an even palate weight with a seamless & persistently rolling length. Serve at room temperature 16-24 �C, now or in the next 2-20 years with a large range of full flavoured foods including duck, lamb, game and beef as well as fresh tomato and egg plant pasta, roast fillet of beef or kangaroo, venison, osso bucco or pheasant with red wine sauce. Serve after decanting as an older wine.
