Aaron:  I’m normally not impressed with the mass produced wines but this surprised me.  The potent smell of vanilla, berries and spice was expected (it is still a Shiraz) and while the flavor was sharp around the edges if you can hold out for the rich center you’ll be well rewarded.  The bold fruit with some chocolate on the finish made this pleasant; it wasn’t very complex but it was smooth and flexible.  92 points

Teri: For an inexpensive wine, Yellow Tail’s flagship is its Shiraz. This wine brings smells of dark fruits along with a full round flavor of current, plum, and a hint of butterscotch. A great wine to bring to a party with a flavor that would work for many wine drinkers, this bottle is bound to please both your guests and your wallet. 90 points
