Rosemount Estate Balmoral 2002 Syrah Wine Review by Billy

Nose: Earthy spiced tobacco and plum and wood smoke.
Palate: Incredibly smooth.  Silk wrapped around tight acid core.  Firm tannins are pleasant.
Finish: Soft finish with lingering pitted cherry flavors and .
Overall: I paid $23.50 for this 2002 Australian Syrah (Shiraz).  This was a substantially discounted price (almost 50%).  The wine comes from the McLaren Vale in Australia.  This 2002 Balmoral Syrah is still tight and young even after 10 years in the cellar.  This is a beautiful example of the exquisite elegance of Australian Syrah (aka Shiraz) done well.  Raise a Glass!
