Yellow Tail Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Wine Tasting Notes A luscious pink, [yellow tail] Rose leaps from your glass with a lifted bouquet of fresh strawberries and spice. The aromas dance onto the vibrant, bright palate swirling between sweet red cherry flavors and a little Aussie sparkle. This delightful wine is spirited and playful with lively acidity, finely textured tannins and a sweet supple finish. Enjoy on its own or with your favourite dish.
I kind of cut my wine teeth some years ago on Yellow Tail Shiraz. Jammy and simple for sure, but also fun and approachable, and we were buying it like crazy. And it kind of helped get me in to wine. So fast forward almost a decade and it has been a long time since I've had a bottle of Yellow Tail. But I had heard some good things about the Reserve Shiraz, and it had shown up on some best buy lists, so I when my grocer had it for about half price I thought what the heck. I was pleasantly surprised. It had a nice nose with lots of raspberry and cherry aromas, and on the palate it was fairly concentrated with some pepper and vanilla notes. All in all a nice Shiraz. I would put this on my crowd pleaser list, and it would be a good wine for a party or BBQ.
While this wine has some slight dark fruit in the beginning, I mostly noticed the spice from the shiraz, which honestly isn't my favorite. It was not harsh or too tannic but there is a lot that I would rather drink.
This wine has an awful taste to it. The 2005 Shiraz was a much better wine than the 2007. I would never purchase this again.
Had glass for first time last night. Really enjoyed, would recommend to any one looking for a new Rose' to try.
spicy, balanced, great with my chili
External Reviews for Yellow Tail Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
Smooth and spicy, not tasting sweet, with a floral edge to the orange-accented berry flavors that linger on the lively finish. Drink now.
An easy wine, as sweet and red as warm raspberry jam. Give it a little chill for picnics.
Soft and round, with cherry and fresh orange peel flavors, finishing slightly sweet. Drink now.
Wine Tasting NotesThe [yellow tail] Shiraz has a deep red color with bright purple hues, characteristic of fine young wines. The [yellow tail] Shiraz is a wine that displays impressive spice, liquorice and black currant aromas. The palate is perfectly balanced with soft tannins and fine French Oak, further complemented by ripe fruit flavors.
Firm in texture, but the ripe blackberry and cherry flavors come across strongly and linger through the open-weave, slightly sweet finish. Drink now.
Supple, bursting with ripe currant and blackberry fruit, playing against spicy oak flavors on the rich-textured finish. Drink now through 2012.
