Yellowtail Reserve 2007

Member Review by Savor deNevell:

I grabbed a bottle of Yellow Tail Bubbles Rose'. I hoped that I would enjoy the wine, but what really intrigued me about this bottle was the resealable cap. Good thing I bought it for the cap. At $8.99 for the bottle it wasn't a great loss that I was less than impressed by this wine. It had slow, medium sized bubbles and went flat in my glass before I was done drinking it. The aroma is nice with grapefruit and flowers, but the flavor just falls short. In the nose there is a promise of fruity goodness, in my mouth it dried out and lost any "umph" it could have had. Yellow Tail Bubbles Rose' seemed like it wanted to be a bright sweet wine, but it was more like a grim shadow. Overall my husband and I were bored, bored, bored. The star of this show by far is the Zork Resealable Cap on the bottle! It breaks my heart when I don't finish a bottle of bubbly before it goes flat and I look forward to being able to make a bottle last a little longer. I do hope more bubbly bottles follow suit and go with Zork.

Granted, I'm just a poor college grad with little experience with wine, but I felt that this was one of the better bottles I've had. Take that for what you will. Yes, I know it's not trendy to like Rose Wine. No, I don't care.
