2010 Wynn's "Black Label" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
Dark colour, and deeply fruited, with masses of blackberry, spicy oak and a splash of geranium; the palate is generous and rugged at this early stage, needing time to fully integrate, but the concentration is undeniable; time is needed.
Refined, showing finesse, this plays its black currant and blackberry fruit against hints of mineral and herb. The finish is wrapped in fine tannins. Best from 2015 through 2020.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon shows forward black currant, cedar and clove aromas over hints of forest floor and bay leaf. Medium-bodied with good amount of muscular fruit, crisp acid, medium to firm levels of grainy tannins and a long, relatively straightforward finish. Drink it to 2020+.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of dark berries, pipe tobacco, lavender and cedary oak, with a hint of black pepper adding vibrancy. Sappy, penetrating and spicy on the palate, offering sweet cassis and cherry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. A vanillin oak nuance comes up on the penetrating finish, which is firmed by youthful but harmonious tannins. This bottling has a solid track record for long aging and this vintage's rendition should continue that tradition.
