Wine Review: A Wynns-Wins Situation

Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (about $20 US, $25 Cdn)

Wynns Estate is a pioneer in the now-famous Coonawarra region in southern Australia’s Limestone Coast. John Riddoch established the first winery there in 1896. For today’s wine review, the Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (about $20 US, $25 Cdn) shows just how much winemaking has evolved in this area. This cab is a great value for the cellar. It’s a bit heavy on the oak, but the incredible tannins and acidity come together to balance the wine out nicely. Blackcurrent flavors dominate, but with many other interesting notes chiming in on the sides. At this price, grab a case and put it down for a good five to 15 years – I don’t think there could be any regret as this label is well known for being age-worthy, and the 2006 vintage is looking like one of the best.
