This amazing blend smells and tastes like blood, as if Wynns has tapped into the veins running deep beneath Coonawarra, pulling up the essence of the earth into its grapes. And it's like blood because of all the iron. Here, it defines the wine but does not overwhelm it. It's the primary vein that runs through what is otherwise an enormously complex wine, with softer Merlot notes of raspberry, plum, cherry, and chocolate coming first but then complemented by Cab cassis and Syrah black pepper and meat, with additional earthy notes. Solid tannic structure and (cran-cherry) acidity. Extraordinary.

Full bodied with a really pleasing length and aftertaste. Black label wines are always fantastic quality.
