Deep, youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is rich and deep, with tremendous intensity and brightness, structure and persistence. A thoroughly impressive young wine. Violets. The tannins are ample and firm and in perfect balance with the wine. This will be very long-lived indeed. Great stuff. Tasted: Jul 2017; Drink: 2017 to 2042; Price: $45.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 98 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

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. Drink By: 2032; Price: $45.00; Date Tasted: 13 Mar 2014; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion

Medium to deep colour, still crimson at the rim; delicate, sweet, floral, fruity aroma – alluring, seductive and classy; vibrant palate reflects the gorgeous aroma; fine tannins embrace the fruit, creating a unity of flavour; great harmony and elegance in a very fine, medium-bodied, elegant and potentially very long-lived cabernet sauvignon. A magnificent wine, in a class of its own. Wynns Coonawarra Cabernet – 60 vintages tasted. Chris Shanahan

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

A classical, long-term cabernet that marries perfectly ripened fruit with excellent oak and structure. Its deep, alluring fragrance of cassis, dark plums, cedar and vanilla are backed by nuances of mint, menthol and graphite. Long and elegant, it’s dripping with a luxuriant depth of dark berry and plum-like flavour supported by fine, polished tannins and tight-grained oak, finishing with charming balance and focus, a hint of mineral, persistence and freshness. Drink: 2022 to 2032+; Rating: 95 Points; Jeremy Oliver; OnWine

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

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
