Colour: Almost impenetrable inky purple. Nose: An initial hit of pepper and spice is backed up by rich cassis and liquorice tones. Well integrated creamy American oak adds great complexity. Palate: The palate shows true Balmoral form, smooth and long with good varietal character. The cassis and spice evidenced on the nose combine seamlessly on the palate with toasty oak flavours to provide a generous, long finish. Reflecting the vintage conditions, the well-rounded tannins are interwoven with a fine thread of acidity and provide the necessary structure for an extended bottle life. Food Matches: Ideally suited to Beef, Duck & Game, Lamb.

Wine SpectatorRipe, with a dried cherry note prominent among the blackberry and licorice flavors. Has real stature. Tannins have a light grip. Best from 2008 through 2011. 4,000 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastSmells of black soot and barbecue spice. Fruit the palate is a liqueurish blackberry, but there is also loads of chunky wood framing it. The combination is a burly one, but aging it might see the fruit fade before the oak. Drink now with a big, rich stew or like foods.
