Winemaker's Notes

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 wine was first produced in 1954 and for many years has been one of Wynns' most popular releases. The 2004 release is an exemplary Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon that continues the tradition of showing the Coonawarra at its very best.

Color: Deep brick red, with a subtle crimson hue

Nose: A rich nose with dark, forest fruit aromas, elegant chocolate notes, and that classic, Coonawarra, earthy, herbaceous character.

Palate: A medium bodied, yet succulent wine. There is a good depth of flavor, coupled with a harmonious spectrum of tobacco, violet and leather flavors. The palate is well balanced with the moderate alcohol level contributing to the lingering finish; complemented with well integrated, lightly toasted oak and a pleasant, firm, tannin backbone.

Food matches: Ideally suited to beef, duck & game, lamb
