d'Arenberg The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 08735


A classic Cabernet in every sense. The nose, allowed time to open evolves from mushroom, olive and salami in to more typical purple fruits, blackcurrant and violets, backed by ripples of freshly torn mint, sage and oregano. A rich, but chiselled palate follows, framed by layers of long, chalky tannins. This sleek, seamless wine has an unmistakeable air of class. Enticing in youth with a promise of greater depth and elegance to reward careful, patient cellaring. While enjoyable in youth, this wine will reach its full potential with bottle age up to at least 20 years. The considerable structure and depth will ensure that the fruit characters will develop over time revealing morencomplexity and providing immense interest.

Wine EnthusiastD'Arenberg's Coppermine Cabernets are often tannic and austere upon release, so be warned should you decide to open one in the next year or two. The aromas and flavors are classic this year, seamlessly marrying cassis and cedar, but finishing dry, astringent and firm. Drink 2020-2030+.

Wine SpectatorDense and rustic, with an appealing, chewy profile, showing notes of dried herb and loam that complement the currant and cassis core. Charming in a rough-and-tumble style. Drink now through 2026. 100 cases imported.
