Impression of Rosemount Estate Diamond Label Shiraz, 2004
In a word, nice. This is
just a really nice wine and an excellent price point. It
is very fruity and very easy to drink with nice soft
tannins. When I was a young man a buddy used to have a
connection who made blackberry wine and I must say this reminds
me a lot of those days.
This is one of those nice reds
that are easy going enough to drink even in the summer when it
is hot outside and now that October is upon us it is even
better. It is also really obvious that this wine did some
maturing in oak which has done some really nice improvements to
its character. This finish is also quite rich and stays
around for quite a while.
Flavors are Most Dominant or Evident In This Wine?
blackberry, plumb, cassis,
spice and cedar
foods will this wine go well with?
Beef, Lamb and Duck and
Venison are all great choices. Some specific things I
think would really do nice with grilled venison sausage or wild
boar sausage. For something a bit more domestic try lamb
chops grilled on hickory or a good old fashioned bacon cheese
burger. It is really going to be hard to mess this one up
just don't pair it with delicate foods like light chicken dishes
because it will be to much and over power them.
It will also do just awesome
with cheeses like sharpe cheddar and other hearty full flavored
cheeses. I had some Vermont White Cheddar with a glass and
it was just exceptional.

Who Is Going to Enjoy This Wine?
If you have tried and like
other typical Merlot, Pinot Noir or Shiraz you won't find much
wrong with this one. If you are a white wine drinker this
one might be a bit to big for you. It is not a big wine
but it is full enough and tannic enough to scare away White
Zinfandel and Riesling drinkers.
Does the Bottle or Vintners Web Site Say About this Wine?
the Vintners Website: A delicious aroma of warm, spicy liquorice and brambly berry fruit is interwoven with
savory American oak. The palate is richly textured with well defined, ripe blackberry fruit flavours, soft generous tannins and a long, rich finish.
the Bottle: The Rosemount Diamond Label
Shiraz displays intense spicy fruit with a richly textured
finish. Subtle oak completes this wine, suited to pastas
