Tries to be light and refined, but feels a bit firm and subdued, offering modest currant and spice flavors that should develop with cellaring. Best after 2005.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
