Wine tasting note: 1996 D'Arenburg Cabernet Sauvignon Coppermine Road

1996 D'Arenburg Cabernet Sauvignon Coppermine Road

2nd Nov 1998 GBP15 Australia Table Red

[Presented blind, completely out of context!]
Opaque purple from core to rim.
Rich, deep, alcoholic nose of mint, leather and cassis.
Very full bodied and chewy with flavours of sweet cassis and mint, lots of oak, firm tannins, good acidity and a long, concentrated finish.
Chewy, young and lovely now, this should repay 4 to 5 years in the cellar.
