Yellow Tail 2007 Shiraz Cabernet

back to the inexpensive wines again with another offering from the australian yellow tail label. i tasted this wine with pizza and it complemented the food well. aromas of plum, black cherry, eucalyptus or menthol notes and a little spice. the flavor was very fruity with black cherry and raspberry, followed by a nice chocolate flavor. i also got a bit of black pepper and a touch of licorice toward the back. medium tannins and a medium finish rounded out this very drinkable red which sells for about $7. not a great wine, but for the price, a fun wine that will go with the fast food menu quite well.
