Rosemount Estate Mountain Blue Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
|Region||Australia, New South Wales|
A solid red, chewy and dense, with plum, currant and lots of peppery spice overtones. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and a relatively soft texture, which lets the flavors soar. Best after 2003. 800 cases imported.
Readers looking for a Beaujolais-styled wine with plenty of character and fruit should check out the 1998 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon (65% of the former and 35% of the latter). Medium ruby-colored with copious aromas of berry fruit and pepper, this fleshy, medium-bodied, fruit-driven red can be served slightly chilled over the next year.
