2001 d'Arenberg Cabernet Sauvignon The Coppermine Road

Two magnums. One corked, one ok. In the case of the latter, this is a restrained wine compared to many from Oz. Good balance, nothing "fruit bomb" about it. From the magnum, seemed to be nicely within the drinking window (e.g. not on decline).

Not bad but very hollow on the mid-palate with a short finish. Fine for a mid-week drinker, but nothing more.

Very fruity well rounded and pleasant wine. No tannines left - but they were probably never there. I was afraid that the taste had passed away, but it was excellent accompanying the beef. I am already looking forward to drinking the other 2 bottles in my cellar.

Weak nose, with hints of black fruit, liquorice, smoke, and vanilla. Palate is light and acid-forward, with moderate tannin. Nice flavour: strong black fruit with complementary notes of oak and spice.

Surprisingly good as my last one had been disappointing. Decanted one hour before drinking. Lots of red and black fruits on the palate with sweet red fruit on the nose. Good length. Would want to get your drink on if you have any left though

Raspberry liquorice, soft plumes of oak, fresh red fruits on the palate, dry, medium bodied finish with good length and super value.

Has improved greatly over the past year. Dark and herbal notes. Quintessential Dead Arm. Opens up with a bit of air. Slowly showing maturity but no rush at all.

Started to shine after 2 hours in decanter then faded after hour 4. Good, but was not blown away.

D'Arenberg wines never disappoint and this reliable Chardonnay delivers what you expect from a lightly oaked modern style. One to keep in the fridge as a perfect drop to round out any good day.

Was in the mood for an aussie shiraz and didn't want to rustle anything up from my cellar. Picked this up. It was good, but you can do much better for $20 in the field.

Fragrant red fruit accompanied by EtOH and rubber on the nose. Full bodied, alcoholic, some sugary red fruit. Cloying finish. I've heard good things about d'Arenberg so I'll give this one a pass, but if we are being honest this is incredibly average.

This one is evolving very nicely and getting closer to drinking time. Last tasted about 15 months ago. Still dark ruby red. Dark bright berry fruits and mineral notes. Still quite primary. The palate is balanced with ripe fine tannins carried nicely by the fruit. Long and balanced finish. Little more subtle than the last bottle and very enjoyable. No need to rush. On the right track.

Opened and poured. Dark red to bricking. Sweet currant nose, with licorice, leather, orange and dust. Bright acids lift the deep fruit, which at this point is fairly resolved, to a resounding and full finish. Will update more with air.

this is past its prime. Cork disintegrated on opening. Still plenty of fruit and pepper on nose. Tannic structure largely gone. Still lots of fruit. Drink now if you have any of this.

We have lift-off! Soaring into Shiraz Stratosphere. Bevies of berries, mulled spices and silken tannins, all with a brash Aussie swagger.

- Garnet color. It's overly tannic - Drink up, it's slow losing its fruit. Nice tar, petrol scent. Mild dark berry, soft on the palate. Enjoyable mild character.
