d'Arenberg The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 750mL

Producer: d'Arenberg
SKU: 97
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1 day

The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.

94/100
Wine Companion
Pungent, powerful, raunchy style; intense blackcurrant fruit; nice French oak.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2004



93/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2002 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a sweet perfume of roasted herbs, black currants, blackberries, lead pencil shavings, and background oak. Full-bodied and structured, it is just a notch below the quality of the 2003.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



89/100
Wine Spectator
Firm, with a velvety feel to the fairly dense blackberry, currant and mint flavors, finishing with a mild bite of tannins.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 15 2004



89/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Saturated ruby-red. Aromas of currant, graphite, tobacco leaf, coconut and herbs. Sweet, fat and lush, with a light cabernet herbaceousness contributing to the wine's complexity. Finishes with palate-coating, slightly dry-edged tannins and very good length.

d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2002 750mL

The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.

Kay Brothers Amery Block Six Shiraz 2003 750mL

Multi layered concentration of very rich, juicy, full-bodied black-berried fruits combined with chocolate, tar, pepper, liquorice, smoky oak and chewy robust tannins.

An intensely complex mouthful of Shiraz fruit with a finish that lingers and lingers. The rich fruit carries the 15.5% alc/vol and we would see this Block 6 developing into a great example of old vine Shiraz with 6 years plus in a good cellar.

d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2003 750mL

The 2003 season was characterised by a very low winter rainfall which signalled the vine to minimize potential crop load. The ripening period was warm producing a crop load of small berries and very pure, ripe fruit characters. Even with a smaller than normal crop load many batches showed wonderful fruit characters due to an excellent skin to pulp ratios and this is evident in the final wine. This year in particular selected parcels of fruit deemed worthy of the Dead Arm label were down 50% in volume.

d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2000 750mL

A perfume of grilled steak intermixed with blackberries, new saddle leather, earth, pepper, and melted licorice rises from this awesome red. With great power, richness, and no hard edges, it is still young and primary, but should hit its peak in 3-7 years, and last for two decades or more.

Branson Coach House Coach House Block Shiraz 2004 750mL

A multi dimensional bouquet of roasted meats, mineral, cola, tar and blackberry. Give this one time to open up, this monster is built for the long haul! The palate starts out thick and coating; immediately powerful and explosive, you are then thrown a huge chunk of fruit while the acid and tannin roll around trying to tame it. The wine shows great oak handling and remains succulent, complete and perfectly balanced.

Viking Wines Grand Shiraz 2003 750mL

A seductive bouquet, showing fresh brambly fruit with a menthol lift. Big, very-fine, dusty tannins need time to integrate but the deep, pure, fruit has enough power to kick through. Liquorice, chocolate and black plum flavours finish with terrific length and persistence. A muscular-weight wine its tight and demands time.

Two Hands Deer in Headlights Shiraz 2002 1.5L

A rich, vibrant crimson in colour. Fantastic aroma, sweet raspberry and plum fruits, seamless oak with hints of vanilla bean. A luscious mouthfeel, complex and intense with dark liquorice and concentrated berry flavours, pencil shavings and fertile earth. The tannins are huge, but present with softness whilst the finish lingers on and on.
