Description

2018 was a great vintage... and yet again this legendary Wynns Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet has attracted multiple 97 & 96 /100 ratings from key critics including Ray Jordan... James Halliday & Andrew Caillard MW. It’s a ratings juggernaut year in year out... irrespective of the vagaries of vintage. 2018 is the 63rd vintage of this legendary & world class Cabernet. In my various roles at Penfolds Wine Group in Australia that morphed into Southcorp Wines during my tenure there 1985-1995... “Penfolds” and “Wynns Coonawarra” were the jewels in the Groups impressive winemaking crown. I visited Wynns in the Coonawarra numerous times and “Wynns Black Label Cabernet” was always at the top of my staff buying allowance. Even though my global wine knowledge was limited then, compared to now... I recognised this red was very special. It is in fact world class Cabernet, at a phenomenally low price... comparable to numerous Bordeaux Classé Growth Cabernets many multiples its price. I’ve had mesmerising experiences drinking 20–25-year-old Wynns Black Label Cabernet... and Wynns Winemaker Sue Hodder is passionate about her favourite red. James Halliday calls it “Australia’s most important Cabernet” and I propose “it’s one of the greatest value Cabernets in the world today”. It is a Cabernet that could age for 2-3 decades with ease if well stored... the type of quality and age ability normally associated with Cabernets many multiples the price of Wynns Black Label.

Smells

Dense and brooding aromas of florals, black olive, leather, cedar, blackberry, currant, tobacco and liquorice.

Tastes

Classic Cabernet savouriness with rich concentration of dark fruit, cassis and black strap liquorice... its impressive length supported by fine grainy tannins and very fine cedary, spicey French Oak. Subtle Cabernet complexities of leather and graphite emerge in the powerful finish. 2018 is a stunning Wynns Black Label that will peak between10-20 years and potentially live a further decade plus in quality storage.
