Rosemount Estate Mountain Blue Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1996
|Region||Australia, New South Wales, Mudgee|
Wine AdvocateThe exceptional 1996 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Blue (90% Shiraz and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a thick-looking opaque purple color. The nose reveals toasty vanilla scents intermixed with blackberry jam and creme de cassis. Low acidity, and a rich, glycerin-imbued, lush texture are hedonistic and alluring. This jammy, thick, juicy, succulent wine should drink well for 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorBright, crisp and delicious for its focused berry, currant and herb flavors. Echoes sage and dusky spice on the racy finish.
