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 20-25% of Cabernet fruit available from Wynns Coonawarra Estate.

The rich dark palate is filled with blackberry and black olive. Classic supple, powdery tannins and balanced acidity, frame the dense core of fruit creating a beautifully balanced wine. Refined French oak supports the pristine fruit ensuring the wine finishes with poise, balance and seamless length.

A wine of style and stature, and a perennial favorite in auction circles, the 'Black Label' is one of Australia's most collectable wines. It consistently delivers the potential for medium to long-term cellaring. 

Depending on personal taste, this wine will reward careful cellaring for 5-15 years.

Ratings
96 points Australian Wine Companion - "Another wine from Wynns and the '12 vintage that shows a significant change in winemaking direction, with the alcohol of 13.5%. While the Woodley Treasure Chest wines were basically shiraz, none wholly cabernet sauvignon, this wine has a structure those wines had in their early maturity. What is most interesting here is the early development on the palate of savoury flavours and firm tannins, yet allowing the fruit to maintain its line through to the all-important finish, where balance is not in question."
Other Notes
94 points Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "A picture of Coonawarra perfection, the expansive 2012 Wynns Cabernet Sauvignon is as multidimensional as a cab can get. While one get too glib about this wine by simply calling it elegant, I am more inclined to label this one as intricate and refined. Perfect with grilled chicken as well as a well-marbled charred on the outside ribeye of beef. Dark ruby in color; alluring aromas of ripe red and blue fruits with an accent of flowers, excellent depth and persistence; medium bodied with supple textures and sweet tannins; delicious juicy berries in the flavors; long finish and quite lush in the aftertaste. (Tasted: February 12, 2016, San Francisco, CA)"
