The 2018 Black Label Cabernet is a combination of dark fruit and finesse. Initially the palate is soft and round, but a fine tannin framework provides structure and length on the palate.
A beautifully balanced, medium- weight Cabernet with all the hallmarks of this heritage label. Pristine varietal cabernet fruit balanced for guaranteed cellaring.
Wynns Black Label Cabernet is a true icon of Australian wine. First produced in 1954, it has a reputation for ageing gracefully and displaying excellent varietal and regional characteristics.
The wine is produced from only the top quality 20 to 25 per cent of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit grown in our terra rossa vineyards.
A legendary staple of every Australian cellar, the 63rd vintage of Wynns' beloved 'black label' contrasts the blackcurrant density of a warm summer with the fine-boned tannins and bright acid tension of long, slow autumn ripening. It's framed eloquently in French oak (21% new). Another classic for the long-term. 93pts. Drink 2028-2033

Fish tacos with a green salsa.
Why? We have always acknowledged Black Label Cabernet as a great pairing with spicier fish dishes.
At Christmas in Texas, I tested the 2018 with Grilled Fish tacos. The cilantro/coriander salsa complimented the leafy Cabernet notes beautifully.
Matured for 14 months in 21% new French oak with the remainder in up to three year old French oak.
