We had a few bottles of this wine on a recent cruise. Deep color, wonderful nose, rich taste, really enjoyed it with steak.

Black currant and mulberry characteristics dominate the aroma, with intense, rich berry fruit, classic tannins, and a deep, concentrated and complex finish.

A classy, nice-sized Cab, and just the right bottle for a steak dinner. The nose shows deep black pepper, dried spice and mixed plums, and the palate andmdash; plums, oak, and blackberry andmdash; follows suit. Finishes with dry, oaky tannins.

Dark as anthracite coal, deep as the Marianas Trench and dense as Montana Mills breakfast bread, this is one highly extracted Cab. From the Mudgee region of Australia, Rosemount acquired this H.O.G. vineyard in 1995 and so far, production is small. Leagues removed from their regular Cabernet, there's an abundance of ripe black fruits: boysenberry, blackberry, currants, blueberry and plum. A solid dose of oak (less than in the Show Reserve) and a blast of spice place this wine in its own unique orbit around the star of Rosemount, conveniently located in a galaxy not so far, far away.

Rosemount's new offering opens with a pleasant vanilla, oak and dark berry fruit nose. On the palate, the fruit takes a backseat to dominant wood. Oak and cedar flavors reign here. It's a little high in acid and tannins to be an easy drinker, and it finishes long and dry with a tart edge. Try with grilled sausages.

Rich and round, this generous Cabernet is beautifully focused to show its red cherry, currant and dusky herb flavors, which finish polished and plump. Delicious. Drink now through 2008.

The aroma is packed with black currant and dark chocolate, underpinned by fine cedary oak. Intensely vibrant berry fruit flavors highlight the distinctive regional varietal characters while the classic firm tannin structure frames a deep complex finish.

Black fruit, spiced meats and overt wood tones set the stage for a traditional Cabernet palate of cassis, blackberry, clove and anise. The finish is fully tannic but not harsh, and tasty well-applied oak comes on late with the taste of coffee. This wine has plenty of merits, most of all its impeccable balance.
