90 Points Robert Parker
The 2008 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon presents a very deep garnet-purple color and earthy notes of loam and moss covered bark over warm black currant and blueberries, lavender and cloves. Full-bodied and ripe, it has crisp acid and medium-firm fine tannins. The finish is long with lingering notes of cloves and coffee. Drink it 2014 to 2020.

95 Points James Halliday
Deep colour; an almost exotic concoction of ripe red and black fruits, licorice and thyme; the massive sweet spot of fruit delivers a rich and generous mouthful of flavour, with the assertive nature of the variety providing presence and contrast; an ample wine speaking of its origins in no uncertain terms. Drink to 2020.
