WINE OF THE WEEK

February 12, 2003|By Michael Dresser

2000 Rosemount Estate "Hill of Gold" Mudgee Cabernet Sauvignon ($19). This intense, full-bodied cabernet from Australia's renowned Mudgee region more than justifies the investment and rivals California wines in the $30 to $50 range for complexity, balance and aging potential. It offers vibrant flavors of black cherry and herbs and a long, graceful finish. It makes for smooth drinking now, but would benefit from five to 10 years of cellaring. You could serve this with roast poultry, but this is really a wine for the red-meat devotee.
