Rosemount Estate Shiraz Cabernet (2004)

I found this large, 1.5 Liter bottle of the Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet at the 50% off table at the Ann Arbor Kroger’s store (I loaded my cart with all the good reds and this was one of them). This is your typical Australian fruit bomb — a round feel in the mouth and the palate bursting with fruit and subtle tannins. There is nothing to complain about unless you prefer a more austere wine. And, what a deal! This large bottle was $21.79 and half priced at around $10.50.  I have had a roast cooking slowly all day, which I will serve on buttered noodles with a vegetable and a salad. This wine will complement our dinner nicely.
