Nothing wrong with this budget bottle: packed with ripe fruit and full body.

I didn't like this. It was too aggressively spicy with little complexity.

    For a wine that you can find for $5-6 it is a great bargain. It has a sweet berry fruit backbone with some oak/vanilla and herbal characters to it. It is great with BBQ, burgers or pasta. I have only had the 2013 vintage. It is a good cheap table red. I have paid $10 or $15 for a lot worse.

    Simply one of the worst wines one can purchase. It's simple, obnoxious flavour refuses to soften over time, even with decanting. Although cheap, it's worth it to spring a little more for a bette wine.

    A rich colour and deep hue introduces your nose to a ripe and rich flavour. A cracked pepper and spice nose is blended with vanilla and fruit ripeness. The vanilla softness on the nose takes you into a ripe palate crammed with weight and soft, sweet oak length.

    zxOpens with ripe cherries and strawberries, with a spicy core and rich vanilla notes on the finish. A well-balanced, earthy finish with warm lingering fruit.

    Ripe and generous, not heavy but showing very ripe cherry, sweet spice and toasty oak flavors that persist on the plump finish. Drink now through 2008.

    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, itrsquo;s richer and more textured than many Shiraz in this price range.
