more than I expected.. very satisfying.. fresh..
Its first taste is not so good. The longer it is open, the better.
Well, I was going to buy this elegant wine bottle for my mother's 86th birthday. As she's very frail and cannot pop the cork I decided I would do it for her. Upon opening I received a very strong fecal matter aroma which penetrated into my nostril cavities causing me to violently vomit all over my mothers gifts and food. I later contacted the maker after cleaning myself up and gave them a strongly worded lecture on the fine wines. I know that I surely will not be purchasing this wine again. Hmmh.
External Reviews for Yellow Tail Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignonrsquo;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.
Supple, bursting with ripe currant and blackberry fruit, playing against spicy oak flavors on the rich-textured finish. Drink now through 2012.
Supple and appealing for its drinkability. Features spicy berry and fresh herb flavors, lingering easily. Drink now through 2013.
In the crowd-pleasing style that is the hallmark of the brand, this good value bottling shows bold vanilla and coconut aromas overlaying strawberry and cherry fruit. Raspberry coulis dominates the palate which offers just the faintest tannic grip. For near-term consumption.
Cabernet Sauvignon has a touch of mint and aromas of blackberries, chocolate and vanilla. Notes of toasted oak support soft fruit and velvety tannins. - Winery
Fleshy, with ripe cherry and plum flavors at the core, shaded with hints of burnt cedar and coffee. Drink now through 2010.
