The '12 vintage that shows a significant change in winemaking direction, with the alcohol of 13.5%. While the Woodley Treasure Chest wines were basically shiraz, none wholly cabernet sauvignon, this wine has a structure those wines had in their early maturity. What is most interesting here is the early development on the palate of savoury flavours and firm tannins, yet allowing the fruit to maintain its line through to the all-important finish, where balance is not in question.

Such a pure and perfect expression of Coonawarra cabernet. This is a lineage going back to 1954 - a wine that even a few years ago was drinking superbly. Balanced and so precise, with powdery tannins and fine-grained oak merging seamlessly with silky-smooth fruit and a concentrated core every serious cellar should have this wine.

The backbone of Black Label are Wynns' magnificent single vineyards on the terra rossa strip. The 2012 is classic Coonawarra cabernet, back in the admirably restrained mould of 2009. It's an excellent release, classic, fine-boned, taut and drawn, built around a fine scaffold of rigid, fine and textural tannins. There's a core of coiled blackcurrant fruit of focused definition; elegantly medium-bodied and effortless, with fine, mineral tannins drawn from the limestone of Coonawarra. It seems the official price is edging ever higher, though the best street prices remain at the same affordable level. Drink: 2022-2032; Price: $45.00; Rating: 95 Points; Tyson Stelzer; Wine Taste

Redcurrant and blackcurrant, almost raspberry accented, whiff of aniseed perfume, light mocha oak and a little tobacco. Medium bodied only – lithe and light – firm pull of open weave fine grained tannin and a crunchy fresh finish. Thickens up as it takes the air but at no stage does it become heavy. All just so. Great release, and as they say in the classics, has years up it.

Has beautifully fragrant, sweet dark fruit with understated cedary oak and a mere suggestion of cabernet leafiness. The palate is supple with a good depth of blackcurrant flavour and excellent length. Huon Hooke loved it." Superbly fresh, clean aromas," he began. "Dark berries, violets and spices. Some dried herbs. The palate is loaded with sweetly ripe, delicious dark berry cabernet flavour. The tannins are light, but firm and fine. A gorgeous wine, very fruit-driven and still young. It promises a long life. Rating: 95 Points; Nick Bulleid MW, Gourmet Traveller Wine

Deep red/purple colour and a bright, blackberry bouquet, clean and superbly ripe, with bright fruit and rich flavour, tremendous fruit intensity and vivacity, and a firm, tight palate structure. The finish rolls on and on. Concentrated and powerful, yet elegantly proportioned. A lovely wine, which needs time and will handsomely reward cellaring.

Medium-bodied with lovely line and length, this sophisticated Coonawarra stalwart shows very persistent and juicy, perfumed cassis fruit, savoury black olive and cedar oak. Polished to perfection and stunning value. Rating: 95 Points; Sarah Ahmed; Decanter (UK)
