Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label 2006

This is quite a sound release from Wynns Coonawarra Estate, part of the Treasury Wine Estates' stable.



I have the impression that many like the wines of Wynns Coonawarra Estate, yet mostly I find them agreeable yet unexceptional.  The 2006 vintage of Wynns' "black label" cabernet sauvignon sits closer to the agreeable side of the equation.  A deep ruby in colour, the wine opens to a light-medium intensity fragrance of mixed herbs and chocolate, and is intermingled with nuances of currants.  On the palate, medium tannins support flavours of iodine and earth, and a woody expression of blackcurrants.  There's good safe claret drinking to be had here.  86 points

  1. I'm one of those big Wynns fan. To me the appeal, and indeed the exceptional nature of Wynns black label comes with age. Most vintages it only shows its best after 10 years

  2. I'll certainly give it a go at 10 years and see how it shows, and mind you this wine was far from bad!
