We've had any number of indifferent wines from Rosemount, so this one was a very pleasant surprise. Widely available, fairly priced, and tasty -- a good combination. This wine has a youthful purple color, a spicy (and very Napa-Zin-like) nose highlighted by berries, bing cherries and plums, and fairly rich red fruit and licorice flavors. It is still young and would benefit from a year or two in the bottle, but it's drinking well right now. - WB exec team 2002-11-03

[stfreak  2003-06-07] I love this wine as a good stanby. Smooth and deeply fruity with a nice warmth.  User Rating: 85.
[bonnie  2003-01-29] This is a good Shiraz. I\'ve had bad luck trying Australian wines- Haven\'t found one that I could comment positively on until I tried Rosemount Shiraz. Easy to drink, juicy, good structure, but soft on the tannins- like a Zin. Good.  User Rating: 86.
