An excellent wine to enjoy with your favorite pasta sauces or try with full flavored offerings such as lamb shanks, stroganoff and classic roast beef.
External Reviews for Yellow Tail Reserve Merlot
The opaque eggplant hue of this stunning value promises much - and what's in the glass delivers. Prominent oaky notes are layered over plum and high-toned floral aromas. Dense and voluptuous on the palate, with chewy tannins, this is a seriously ambitious wine that could benefit from a year or two in the bottle.
Light and silky, with pretty currant and savory flavors competing for attention. Drink now.
Bright and juicy, offering a lively mouthful of red berry and blackberry flavors, shaded with hints of tobacco and cream. Finishes with a light grip of tannins.
Round, velvety and mouthfilling, this is a satisfying Merlot at a bargain price. Aromas of black cherries and herbs fold in hints of cinnamon and mocha, while the flavors are generally fruity, but with a slightly tomatoey note. Soft on the finish.
Merlot isn't what Australia is known for, but this is a tasty, toothsome wine at a realistic price. Delicate notes of cinnamon, clove and cocoa accent black cherries and cassis in this soft, creamy-textured effort.
