Rosemount Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Since 1974, Rosemount has been one of Australia's leading wineries, producing wines that reflect the riches of the Australian climate and a dedication to quality, innovation and . Rosemount's unique diamond shaped label serves as a beacon for consumers around the world, with international accolades bearing testament to the tradition of winemaking excellence. In 2006, a new chapter has opened on the Rosemount story, with a reinforced commitment to the hallmark Rosemount wine and groundbreaking new packaging which sees Rosemount again setting the standard for innovation and quality on a global scale. The Diamond Label Series is the heart of Rosemount. Stylish and sophisticated, these wines display the fruit forward, easy-drinking sensibilities which make them delicious from the first sip to the final delectable drop. This wine is sourced from premium wine regions across south east Australia. The 2005 vintage was of consistent good quality across all regions. Favorable seasonal conditions - particularly mild temperatures, with few sustained hot periods, and moderate and generally well timed rainfall - resulted in good quality and steady ripening of fruit, with full varietal characters being developed. Small parcels of this wine were matured with oak for 12 months. Deep ruby with crimson hues. A distinctive Cabernet nose showing lovely, expressive fruit aromas of cassis and red cherry with hints of briar character. A wine with a soft, fruit driven palate with bright expressive fruit and great texture. Great mid-palate fruit flavors lead to a generous finish, supported by lovely, fine tannins.

Strong berry flavors, fairly good body, and enough of a finish to prevent dissappointment. I'd say about a 85, but the pricing probably inflates that a bit. It's extremelly hard not to recommend, especially since it's not too hard to find for $6-8 on sales fairly regularly.

The wine shows well defined varietal characters of blackcurrant and sweet red capsicum on the nose, with subtle smoky hints of well integrated oak. The palate shows rich, ripe berry flavours with well defined, nicely rounded tannins and a long elegant finish.
