Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

Medium dark red purple. Very good colour. Subdued, shy nose, laced with liberal oak and some mellowing from age. Savoury, drying tannins, elegant and smooth; liberal fine-grained powdery tannins, not overtly oaky; elegant and stylish, though not very detailed or expressive at this stage. Undoubtedly has a life ahead of it. Fine, taut, understated, very youthful and under-developed. Masses of tannin! Cellar this.

92 Points Robert Parker

The flagship 2006 John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon was the only Wynn wine I was able to taste. Having visited the winery in 2008, it is apparent that serious strides have been made under winemaker Sue Hodder. As for this wine, it spent 22 months in 100% new French oak. It is opaque purple-colored with an alluring perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, violets, black currant, and a hint of mint. This is followed by an elegantly styled wine with a smooth texture, layers of savory red and black fruits, superior depth and grip, nicely concealed, ripe tannins, and a lengthy, pure finish. Give it 4-6 years in the cellar and drink it from 2014 to 2031.

96 Points James Halliday

A wine with a proud history and proven development for 20 years or more; it has a deep, rich and full-bodied well of blackcurrant, blackberry and black olive flavours encased in a web of perfectly formed tannins. Drink to 2026.
