@Eric Urbani An interesting tasting Eric. From an Australian point of view, many good judges rate McLaren Vale Grenache higher than Barossa Grenache and so it proves to be with your tasting group with the d’Arenberg.

The Coppermine Road McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Probably just a little young at the moment (2021). A little bit chalky. Very flavoursome - rich blueberry, definitely a touch of eucalyptus (it's definitely there), there is a sort of shortbread bit but more the sugar than the butter. Lovely deep deep red mulberry colour. A lovely sweet soft sugar scent. — 6 days ago
