Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Rosemount Estate Shiraz Cabernet 2008 Wine Review
Lovely purple plum, blueberry, blackberry and cassis aromas on this full-bodied, supple wine. This wine is a blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Polished tannins and a lengthy finish make this a supremely satisfying wine. 4.4/5

|D rated this wine as 4.4/5|
|Vintage Conditions: Fruit for this wine was sourced from selected vineyards in South Eastern Australia. The 2008 vintage was warm to hot, with a pro-longed heatwave in mid-March. However, grapes picked before the elevated temperatures were delivered to the winery in excellent condition, resulting in good varietal definition and balanced flavours.|
Maturation: This wine as matured in stainless steel to retain a fresh fruit focus.
Colour: Vibrant, dark cherry red with purple hues.
Nose: The bright, spicy nose shows notes of liquorice, blackberry, cassis, eucalypt and mint.
Palate: The Rosemount Diamond Cellars Shiraz Cabernet is a medium bodied wine, with bright flavours of spice, blackberry, cassis and mint. Soft, silky tannins carry a long, lingering finish.
