External Reviews for Rosemount Estate Merlot Diamond
A highly versatile variety that lends itself to richly flavored wine styles. Deeply colored with a rich aroma of ripe plums and sweet red apples. The palate is plump and ripe with layers of dark cherry flavors set against moderate oak and a long, smooth finish.
Strawberry aromas combine with flavors of blood plum, spice and subtle vanillin hints. Natural juicy acidity frames the palate, and supple tannins add good length to the finish. Ideally suited to beef, lamb, and veal.
Aromas are lactic and creamy out of the gate, and go sweet and candied with air. Fruit on the palate is lackluster, the smooth wood flavors and feel dominating.
Ripe, fleshy and appealing for its raspberry and currant flavors. Hints at mint and cream as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2009.
Soft and appealing for its blueberry-scented currant and cedar flavors. Drink now.
Smooth and round, with generous currant and berry flavors that echo nicely on the firm finish.
Light and appealing for its red berry and dried herb flavors, finishing simple and with some generosity. Drink now.
