Yellow Tail Merlot 2009
Wine Tasting Notes A rich, deep garnet color 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 flavors enhanced by a trace of spice.
External Reviews for Yellow Tail Merlot
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.
Bright and lively, this is juicy with plum and berry flavors, shaded with hints of mint and cedar. Drink now.
Like a cassis candy wrapped in vanilla-scented chocolate, this is a tasty red for a crowd, a bargain-priced party pour.

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