Wynns ‘Black Label’ Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 30-Aug-2012
Very dark, deep, black-red colour, with hints of ruby, quite youthful in appearance. The nose features well-ripened fruit, black berries and plums, with notes of liquorice, mint and eucalypt, and sweet oak prominent. This has real depth and intensity of bouquet. Full-bodied, this has excellent, rich, ripe and sweet black fruit flavours, along with eucalypt notes, well supported by fulsome tannin structure, the wine having grip and presence. The acidity adds to the fruit sweetness and brightness, and the mouthfilling nature of the wine shows the generosity and warmth of the vintage, more so than varietal expression. Quite robust in demeanour, this should age another decade and a half with ease. Seen as "big and luscious with classic Coonawarra characters” by Wynns, this could have come from warmer climes, and seemed to be Shiraz-like to some tasters. 19.0-/20 Aug 2012
