Let's be unpretentious about this: you're buying a bottle of Yellow Tail. You're probably going to a party or event where you don't want to *not* bring booze, or you've only got a handful of dollars for some kind of wine. It is by no means fantastic, except that for the money it is utterly not-crappy. I bought my first bottle of this after seeing the lead singer of my favorite gypsy/cabaret/canival punk band down a 1.5L during an hour-long set. I was sold. I bought a bottle and immediately was impressed with its drinkability and oakish notes. Tastes of vanilla and blackberries which suggest at a currant undertone as well. My wife and I have been picking up 1.5L at $12 a go whenever we just want to have *something* for a night in. That said, sometimes it is very touchy and some bottles have a vinegariness that doesn't completely turn me of but is still there.

One of the worst wines I have ever tasted. Like an alcohol soaked grape jolly rancher. I don't expect a lot from sub-$10 wines, but I know of many that are perfectly good table wines with food. This one is literally undrinkable. It's as if they tried to improve bad wine by making it sweeter with corn syrup.

I paid 7 US dollars for this wine and must say that I have had better. It's flavor was present, but definitely watered down. it had a plum nose which was mild and pleasant, but the taste left something to be desired. Honestly, not bad for 7 bucks, but not something i would soon get again. Spend another 3-4 dollars and get something that is more full-flavored.

Firm in texture, but the ripe blackberry and cherry flavors come across strongly and linger through the open-weave, slightly sweet finish. Drink now.

The Yellow Tail Cabernet Sauvignon has a touch of mint on the nose, layered over aromas of blackberries and vanilla. The palate has great length with toasted oak, ripe fruit and soft, velvety tannins.

Supple, bursting with ripe currant and blackberry fruit, playing against spicy oak flavors on the rich-textured finish. Drink now through 2012.

Dieser purpurrote Cabernet Sauvignon besticht im Gaumen durch kräftige Aromen nach Brombeeren, schwarzer Schokolade und einem Hauch von Minze und Vanille. Ein schöner, vollmundiger Cabernet Sauvignon, gut strukturiert, mit gut integrierten Röstaromen und samtigen Tanninen. Der Abgang ist lang und ausgewogen

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon's deep ruby color is followed by such varietal characteristics as red and black currants as well as plums. It is jammy on the palate, with medium body, fresh acidity, and a decent finish.
