Medium dark red purple: excellent colour. Fairly oaky nose (and, in hindsight, the colour is oak-fixed). Grippy oaky tannins pervade the palate. Firm tight and with good concentration, it's a youthful, backward, oak-driven style which will probably age long-term but always lack a little in charm and drinkability. Very corporate-style red wine.

The purple-colored 2006 Copper Trail Shiraz was aged for 20 months in a mix of new and used French oak. It displays a superb nose of black olives, plum, cassis, black raspberry, and smoky oak. This is followed by a full-bodied, layered, smooth-textured wine with tons of savory black fruits, ripe tannins, and several years of aging potential. Drink this impeccably balanced effort from 2012 to 2018.

The 2006 Copper Trail Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre is a blend of 71% Shiraz, 19% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre and 4% Malbec. Deep garnet-purple colored is has intensely fruity warm raspberry, peppery, allspice aromas with touches of dried plum and tree bark. Full-bodied, it offers a medium level of silky tannins, a good backbone of high acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2013+.

Beginning to show some development; citrus/lime and a touch of toast before balanced acidity on the finish. Drink to 2013.

"Whenever I see the name ‘Copper Trail’ I instantly think of ‘Copper Trial’. This wine has no significant reduction, mind you.
Menthol, rich blackberry nip, chocolate and a little meatiness with good cedar oak. It’s big, sweet and smooth, although pleasantly charry and savoury too, with fine grained tannins and a plump and plush mouthfeel that’s just a little unsettled by stinging bolted-on acidity. Lovely wine, although I’ve reservations about both the level and nature of the acidity. Time may well sort it all out – all cats are grey in the dark."
