Yellow Tail Merlot 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

taste A rich, deep garnet colour with purple hues. The nose is packed with ripe plum and red berry aromas with hints of spice and vanillin oak. The palate is full-bodied and fruit driven, with fruitcake and ripe plums balanced with subtle oak usage. The finish is smooth with lingering flavours enhanced by a trace of spice. cellar An easy drinking wine designed for immediate enjoyment. eat and enjoy An excellent food wine. Try with lamb, char-grilled salmon/tuna, roast poultry, Italian cuisine (especially pasta with meat sauces), steak and kidney and soft cheeses. dish Lamb shanks with white beans.

Really something different. This is a nice dry merlot with an incredibly fruity bouquet. The taste is unlike any merlot I have ever tried. The tannins are soft, but the finish remains rather long. Truly impressive wine that would be a great conversation wine with friends or family. I will definitely buy more.

Soft and supple, with sweet cherry and herb flavors prominent, lingering on the generous finish. Drink now.

Like a cassis candy wrapped in vanilla-scented chocolate, this is a tasty red for a crowd, a bargain-priced party pour.

Bright and lively, this is juicy with plum and berry flavors, shaded with hints of mint and cedar. Drink now.

Nutty-brambly aromas and red fruit on the nose lead to plum and black raspberry fruit on the palate. Therersquo;s some caramel flavor here, but itrsquo;s not as prevalent as it has been in other wines by this brand. Flavors are a little bright overall, but itrsquo;s still a good value.
