Surprisingly good, perfect for a weeknight dinner. Another good deal for the sub-$10 range.

This wine had a strong taste and scent of olive to me. A little too much for my taste. Perhaps this would've been a nice wine to complement a Greek or Italian dinner. I'd be willing to give Yellow Tail another try, but probably not the shiraz.

It's not "fantastic" but I wasn't expecting that for less than $6.50 a bottle - come on. For a cheap wine it's very drinkable. Probably a good bulk buy for a conservatively budgeted event.

Tastes as it costs... Too tart/bitter for my liking. Could use some body or maybe more aging... But the more you drink it the better it tastes! :o)

The Reserve line from Yellow Tail represents solid value in its particular idiom. The 2008 Shiraz is well endowed with fruit, accenting the cassis and blueberry flavors with hints of cedary oak. While it remains essentially a simple, fruity quaff, it's richer and more textured than many Shiraz in this price range.

Dieser Shiraz besticht durch seine tiefe violette Farbe und die betörenden Noten nach Beeren und Gewürzen. Der vollmundige Gaumen zeigt intensive AAromen nach reifen Früchten, unterlegt mit erdigen Tönen und einem lieblichen, langen Abgang

Impressive spice, licorice and red berry aromas. This wine is perfectly balanced with silky tannins, accompanied by big, ripe fruit flavors.

The 2002 Yellow Tail Shiraz reveals a deep ruby color along with additional earthy/blackberry notes, a fuller, jammier palate impression, medium body, and a fresh, pure style.

Fresh and generous, this juicy Shiraz displays pretty plum and berry fruit and finishes with a nice open texture. Drink now.

Smooth and appealing for its pleasant berry and earth flavors. Drink now.

Ripe and aromatic. A juicy mouthful of plum and blackberry, with a bouquet of sweet spices, lingering effortlessly on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2012.
