Mostly spicy, slightly sweet, with a smooth vanilla finish. Not high brow, but like all Yellow Tail wines, this offbeat wine is good for everyday drinking.

Dominated by blackberry notes, this is an easy rider that you can enjoy any night. The tannins are soft, the mouthfeel smooth and the finish long. Enjoy it with some pasta.

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

Combines smoky, slightly acrid aromas with pretty strawberry scents and then piles juicy berries onto the palate. Finishes tart with hints of smoke and wood. For summer grilling at home, this is a pretty good choice.

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.

Soft, ripe and appealing for its green olive-shaded black fruit flavors, finishing with a thin veil of firm tannins. Less sweet than previous vintages. Drink now through 2008.

This wine offers grapy, dark fruit with a touch of dry earth and an aroma of buttered toast. The acidity and fruit are balanced, but lack the structure that more noticeable tannins would provide.

Ripe and generous, this is another good value in Yellowtailrsquo;s reserve line. Boysenberry, blueberry and delicate licorice scents work the nose, followed by sweet raspberry flavors in the mouth. Oak-derived coconut aromas seem to sit on top of the wine but may integrate better after a year in bottle.
