Rosemount Mountain Blue Shiraz Cabernet, 2001
Mountain Blue is the jewel in the crown of Rosemount's vineyard estate in Mudgee, on the western slopes of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales Australia. This wine has a deep purple/ruby color. The nose is packed with black fruit, licorice and spice. This is a rich and elegant wine with flavors of ripe black cherry, blueberry jam, current, licorice and pepper. There is a nice gentle cloak of toasty oak along with pleasant sweet tannins that add to the lingering, harmonious finish. This is a lovely wine from Rosemount Estates that was a great compliment to last night’s “snow storm” dinner.
