Winemaker's Notes

An intensely concentrated wine, this Shiraz initially reveals aromas of ripe cherries, blackberries, chocolate and mocha. Delving deeper into this complex wine, cracked pepper and spice fragrance are apparent with sweet French oak aromas always present. The vanilla softness on the nose leads into a full palate crammed with ripe fruits reminiscent of a basket of sweet summer berries. Seamless and well structured tannins complete this full bodied red wine.

Cellaring potential: Drink now or with correct cellaring will mature for up to four years.

Suggested food: A perfect accompaniment to this wine would be rich rare char-grilled beef and asparagus or a rich confit de canard to bring out its juicy palate.

Anybody that looks down their nose at the Yellow Tail label owes it to themself to try this Reserve Shiraz. Around the $10 mark, this has become my favorite wine value. A spicy berry nose, followed by rich fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry, with some cocoa mixed in. Understated tannins give this wine a nice structure and contribute to a long, smooth finish. Really hard to go wrong with this quality at this price point. Very much recommended.

I enjoyed the 2006 vintage, I had been looking for a 2005, but hasve been unable to find it in my area. It was a wonderful wine for about $11. Had it with red meat and it was a great compliment.
