Readers looking for sensationally concentrated, yet well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that can be drunk now or cellared for twenty years should check out the 1998 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts a dense purple color as well as an exquisitely pure nose of cassis, oak, earth, cedar, and spice box. Full-bodied and powerful, with a seamless personality (because of the melted tannin), this large-scaled, classic southern Australian Cabernet Sauvignon can rival the world''s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.

Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet has strong, savoury/earthy cabernet varietal character; curiously, given the very good vintage, the palate does not have as much luscious red fruit as usual, tending austere and tannic. Drink to 2008.
