Wynns Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia, 2019
100% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15 months in a combination of new and used French oak (34% new).
The 64th vintage of this archetypal Australian Cabernet.
On the nose wild berries, black olive and rhubarb notes with fragrant nutmeg and cedary oak, underpinned by delicate notes of sage and violet florals. On the palate dark cassis stretches the length of the palate. Fine, powdery tannins and succulent acidity support rich fruit with exceptional poise. Outstanding cellaring potential for this vintage.
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 quality 20 to 25 percent of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit available from Wynns Coonawarra Estate.
"What an extraordinary wine and no doubt one of the best value wines to be released in 2021, this is a must have for Wynns fans or, for that matter, anyone with a wine cellar. It’s gorgeous now and also built for the long haul.
Bright deep ruby, it instantly appeals thanks to bright vibrant fruits and rare energy that says drink me. Fruit pastilles, leafy going into celery salt herbal elements are supported by balanced oak. The palate is all about understated power and balance with a core of sweet blackcurrant fruits that are long and enveloping. There is a also a firm backbone of tannins which help to provide an exceptionally long finish. A triumph that is worth stocking up on to enjoy over the next ten, twenty, even thirty years." 95/100 points, Angus Hughson, Winepilot.com 2021
