One of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons produced in South Australia is d’Arenberg’s Coppermine Road. Boasting a deep purple color as well as structured flavors of cassis, earth, saddle leather, spice box, and tobacco leaf, the ripe, medium to full-bodied, fleshy 2000 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a slightly tannic finish. Give it 1-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 12-15.

Medium red-purple; blackberry and blackcurrant fruit on the bouquet has some more savoury characters in the background; there is more of the same on the palate, with fractionally edgy tannins running from the back palate to the finish. Drink to 2010.
