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
