Wine SpectatorDense in flavor, crisp in structure, with beautifully proportioned blueberry, plum and pepper aromas and flavors. Acidity is a bit livelier than in earlier vintages, but this should be a "wow" wine for years to come.--Rosemount vertical. Drink now through 2004 . 4,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe estate-bottled 1995 Syrah Balmoral exhibits nearly excessive oak, but there is no doubting its sweet blackberry and cherry-scented nose with aromas of licorice and spicy new oak. As the wine sits in the glass, notes of bacon fat emerge. Fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and smoky, with excellent purity, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 7-8 years.
