1998 Balmoral has an excellent deep purple/red colour, and an aroma showing intense, concentrated plum and blackberry fruit underpinned by extremely well integrated American oak. The palate shows the typical full length, expressive fruit and velvety richness, that defines Balmoral. The concentration of berry fruits, cloves and spices wrapped tightly together and complimented by finely integrated savoury oak combine into a seamless lingering finish.

Firm in texture, aiming for elegance over power, with delicious blueberry and plum fruit at the core, shaded with hints of sweet spices and toast. Fine tannins can use some cellar time. Best from 2003 through 2010. 2,500 cases imported.

Superblack and superdry-if you can handle the truth about the Balmoral, and you're still reading this review, you'll love it. Reviewers appreciated the wine's deep blackberry, toast and chocolate aromas, as well as its blackberry and black-pepper flavors (offset by a slight vanilla creaminess). Mouthfeel is full and well-balanced, with tannins to spare.
