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. Beautiful blackcurrant, black plum aromas with violet, dark cherry aromas and underlying toasty oak nuances. Superb cassis, black plum flavours, inky textures fine long graphite tannins, vanilla oak complexity and vinosity. Finishes chalky firm and minerally with lovely fruit sweetness. This is a brilliant black label with all the hallmarks of a great vintage and reflecting the Coonawarra terroir at its best. Rating: 98 Points; Andrew Caillard MW

This is sumptuous, savoury cabernet at a ridiculous price. The tannins are pristine and tight of grain; the acidity fresh and juicy; the oak embellishing rather than smothering; the fruit, an effortless flow of currant, leaf, mint, bitter chocolate and a punctuation of bay leaf and a herbal potpourri, staining the long finish. Drink to: 2031; Price: $45.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2017; Alcohol: 13.8%; Rating: 95 Points; Ned Goodwin; James Halliday Wine Companion

Deep, ripe cabernet aromas, blackberry and cedar, with a subtle but noticeable kiss of oak, and no green elements. The wine is very elegant and balanced, intense and soft textured, ripe and harmonious. The body is only medium to full, the tannins velvet smooth. A superb example of the Wynns style. (The 61st vintage of the 'black label'). Date: Aug 2018; Alcohol: 13.8%; Price: $45.00; Drink: 2018-2041; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

A perfectly composed and refined cabernet sauvignon with plush dark fruit and exquisitely integrated tannin. The balance of this wine is superb, allowing it to be enjoyed now, or well into the future. Date: Aug 2018; Alcohol: 13.8%; Price: $45.00; Drink: 2018-2036; Rating: 95 Points; Toni Paterson; The Real Review

It’s a shapely, structured wine of fine tannin, lithe but flavoursome fruit character, exceptional length and a general ambience of sophistication. It’s perhaps not as taut as some releases have been of late, but there is a svelte feel and the wine offers depth and satisfying concentration. Tannins start tight and spread in a fan, there’s lively acidity playing underneath keeping things fresh. Each sip reveals a bit more, until critical mass, and then you get the gist that this wine has a little extra heft, spice of mocha oak and perky, tight-skinned, dark berry fruit flavours come to the fore. It’s wonderful drinking, perhaps earlier drinking too. Tasted: Jun 18; Alcohol: 13.8%; Price: $44.99; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2030+; Rated: 93+ Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
