Wynns Coonawarra Estate Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Investment in the vineyards in the winery is paying big dividends, viticulturist Alan Jenkins and winemakers Sue Hodder and Sarah Pigeon with total control. The color and sheer power of the varietal expression achieved at this level of alcohol is totally admirable; blackcurrant, blackberry and black olive are welded together with powdery tannins and perfectly judged oak.
Bright ruby-red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackcurrant and cherry, with suggestions of pipe tobacco, musky earth, vanilla and woodsmoke. Sappy, subtly sweet and focused, with intense dark berry and lavender pastille flavors accented by candied licorice and mocha nuances. Powerful and structured but not at all hard, this Cabernet finishes with excellent clarity and length, the supple tannins building slowly. This bottling is always a good bet for cellaring and this vintage continues that tradition
