Wilfred Wong  92 points - "Sometimes the best wine in the house is the one you have in your hand, the 2010 Wynn Coonawarra Estate Cabernet is evolving well and while quite rich, it is quite open-knit; racy red fruit flavors, with a streak of chalkiness; serve up some blackened chicken, fresh off of the grill and you'll have a match. "

Wine Spectator - "Refined, showing finesse, this plays its black currant and blackberry fruit against hints of mineral and herb. The finish is wrapped in fine tannins."

Wine information

A deep wine with vibrant purple hues. On the nose, Black cherry, blackberry & brambly aromas entwine with dark spices & tobacco. On the palate, Fragrant, bright and pure, with blackcurrant, coffee and violet notes. A core of dark fruit runs through the palate,defining this as a powerful expression of ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. Supple tannins coat the palate & frame all the elements to create a focused, elegant and classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winery

Wynns Coonawarra Estate was founded in 1951 by Samuel Wynn and Sons. It is situated on part of the original Riddoch vineyards and the historic winery, built by John Riddoch in 1891, is immortalized on the Wynns Coonawarra Estate label. The region's unique "terra rossa" soil makes Coonawarra one of the outstanding wine regions in the world. Today, Wynns Coonawarra Estate is the region's pre-eminent wine producer and largest single vineyard holder with the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra.

Winemaker Sue Hodder grew up in the "red center" – Australia's outback. The red soil of Coonawarra is now her home. After graduating from Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1984, Sue started in the viticultural side of the wine industry as a Grower Liaison Officer. Making detailed assessments of vines through the year, tasting and analyzing maturing fruit and following up on the resulting wines gave Sue an appreciation of the importance of the vineyard in quality wine production. Sue then made what she considers to be a logical step into winemaking. She started at Wynns Coonawarra Estate in 1993, fell in love with the winemaking region and has remained. In 1998, she became Chief Winemaker.
