Shiraz Diamond Series Southeastern Australia Rosemount Shiraz 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep plum red with purple hues. The nose shows aromas of blackberry, cherry, plum, chocolate, black pepper and spice against a backbone of very subtle, well integrated oak. A full bodied, juicy sweet palate with cherry, chocolate, cherry pip and plum flavors. The finish is supported by well balanced, long, silky smooth tannins. It is this fantasticbalance that allows for great drinkability.

The 2006 through 2008, I thoroughly enjoyed. Very smooth for a Shiraz and well balanced.

What is this, some kind of a joke? HOW much, for this jammy plastic explosive? SEVEN dollars? This big, dark, chewy, fruit and tannin-filled shiraz costs ... what? OK, if you’re reading this, you probably know what cheap red wine tastes like. Think about the last time you trusted a good-looking flight attendant who offered you a merlot . . . http://wineguider.wordpress.com/2010/11/18/rosemount-shiraz-review/

Not my cup. Alcohol is overpowering alongside the bitterness, overriding the vanilla, tannin fruit, and lavender, almost perfume-y. Be sure to sip, and not gulp, not a party wine.

Richly textured and well defined ripe black berry fruit flavours, soft and generous tannins on the mid-palate and a long, rich finish.

The Diamond Label Shiraz has a full-bodied, juicy-sweet palate with cherry, chocolate, cherry pip and plum flavors. The finish is supported by well-balanced, long, silky smooth tannins. It is this fantastic balance that allows for great drinkability. - Winery

Rosemount set the standard for good, inexpensive Aussie shiraz with the sweet, black-fruited style of this wine. Its spicy black pepper finish will meld with any grilled meats.

A very good year for the Diamond Label Shiraz. It's a chunky, sturdy red with mixed plums and a ribbon of mocha or chocolate from the nose through to the finish. Not overdone, and very enjoyable.

Ripe and sprightly, with pleasant blackberry and herb flavors. Drink now.

Bright, jazzy and flavorful, a lively mouthfull of blackberry, cherry, pepper and floral flavors, which linger nicely on the balanced finish. Much improved over 2001, but it's a lighter style than it used to be. Drink now through 2004.
