The 2010 Wynns John Riddoch is exactly the wine that this label should have evolved into. It retains its flagship strength and structure but delivers rare degrees of finesse and balance. It’s unashamedly a powerful and handsomely oaked cabernet and it’s clearly a vin de garde. It’s a wine that meets all the initial expectations of the label.

A substantial, concentrated but finely balanced cabernet for the very long term. It’s deeply layered, with brambly fragrance of profoundly ripened black, red and blue fruits laced with scents of violets and supported by fresh, tight-grained cedar/vanilla oak. Powerfully constructed, with a plush presence of intense, sour-edged dark plums and berries wrapped around a fine, grainy backbone, it’s long and astringent, finishing with exemplary length and balance. Drinking window between 2030-2040+ if you can be bothered to wait! Rating: 98 Points;  Jeremy Oliver
 
There is no question: this is a top notch Riddoch cabernet. The colour is a given, as is the depth and purity of the varietal expression, but despite its moderate, indeed modest, alcohol, it is full-bodied, and really should be left for 10 years, then enjoyed over the next 20-30 years thereafter, its future guaranteed by its screwcap. Rating: 98 Points & Top 100; James Halliday
 
2010 is one of the great John Riddochs. It’s sustained a significant price rise, from $90 two years ago and $130 last year to $150 this year – and it’s worth every cent. At a refreshing 13.5% alcohol, this is a classic Coonawarra cabernet of understated power, tense definition and impeccable class. It’s breathtakingly pure and alluringly evocative, taking days to fully unwind and reveal exacting definition of blackcurrants and crunchy blackcurrant buds on the bouquet. The palate is taut, compact and tangy, presenting red- and blackcurrant fruits set in a brilliantly structured framework of impeccably fine, mouth-embracing and long-enduring tannins. Gravelly, mineral structure and remarkable persistence guarantee a long and inspiring future. Best Drinking: 2030-2040; Rating: 98 Points; Tyson Stelzer
