First produced in 1954, and widely known as ‘Black Label’, Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has established a reputation for displaying excellent varietal and regional characteristics. The wine is produced from only the top 20-25% of Cabernet fruit available from Wynns Coonawarra Estate.
Medium deep crimson. Lovely blackcurrant pastille, cedar aromas with herb garden, sage notes. Well concentrated with blackcurrant, roasted chestnut, vanilla flavours, classical fine-grained tannins, inky density, beautiful richness and al-dente firm cedary finish with fresh integrated quartz-like line. A gorgeously seductive wine with the fruit complexity, balance and persistence for medium to long term cellaring. A very fine vintage with St Julien-like structure.

Wynns say it's Australia's most important cabernet based on volume and value of each vintage. It's a model for the flavour and structure of cool grown cabernet with the ace in the hole cards of blackcurrant fruit, firm tannins and balanced oak.

About as effortless as cabernet can be. It flows, it establishes its credentials, it does just enough and then it sets about creating all the right conditions for it to cellar well. There are briary, bitter herb notes but they work with the fleshy, boysenberried cassis characters. Oak is almost nowhere to be seen. The flavours feel seamless. The longer you sit with this wine the more impressive the tannin structure seams; it unfurls. The impression of the wine s overall quality rises as a result.

Another cracking wine from this famous label. It’s Coonawarra through and through. Deep blackcurrant and slightly leafy berry aromas. The palate is so deep and concentrated with plenty of weight delivered on an elegant controlled more medium bodied frame. Dusty light iron filings character infuses into the palate too add another degree of intrigue. Price: $45.00; Best drinking: Now to 2036; Rating: 94 Points; Ray Jordan
