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

1996 D'Arenburg Cabernet Sauvignon Coppermine Road

17th May 1999 GBP15 Australia Table Red

Opaque purple/red, paling slightly at rim.
Lurking, immature mint and cassis nose with hints of pencil shavings.
Full bodied with juicy cassis and mint flavours, firm tannins and good length.
Very concentrated, thick and chewy but the acidity is still a bit raw.
Very good, but needs 4 to 10 years.
