d'Arenberg The Coppermine Road

d'Arenberg is known for quirky names for some of their wines, but why would you name a wine Coppermine? As I drank the 2009 d'Arenberg Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon, I found the association to be closer than probably intended.

The wine kicks off with typical varietal redcurrant characters, but becomes a little metallic on the back palate. The fruit of the wine is of good quality, but ultimately, the wine lacks elegance, and the finish is a little harsh.

Score: 89/-
