Reviews and Ratings

David rated this wine as 89/100
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Jammy dark plum, mocha and hints of spice dominate the aromas, while the palate showcases more of a ripe, off-dry concentrated cooked plum situation. It's not too dissimilar from other Yellow Tail "bold red" labels (not surprising and very much expected). A least you know what you are getting year vintage to vintage. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

An approachable Australian Shiraz offering an accessible price point with lots of red fruit. Medium body and medium tannins. Pair with meat lovers pizza or BBQ burgers. A crowd pleaser option for the masses. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 84/100.
Steph rated this wine as 82/100

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
