An intensely concentrated wine, Yellow Tail The Reserve 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 takes you 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.
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.
Raspberry flavors turn into black cherry as this wine matures. Its a juicy delicious wine with complexity. Very good value for the price, it will be my everyday wine for Winter 2008/9.
