It is a good all around wine. I'm always up for trying new stuff but this one I know is "safe" and I always go back to.
Still an Exceptional Value
Don't be fooled by Yellow Tail's commonplace appearance and modest price... their Merlot is a fine example of why these wines are so popular... lots of jammy characters here, backed up by soft tannins and a very smooth, enjoyable finish... by no means an A-List Merlot, the Yellow Tail is, however, a crowd pleaser that more than delivers for its ostensibly "cheap" price tag... good to have on hand for parties and quiet nights in...
Yellow Tail Merlot
A good value. Reliable over the years.
Very nice for the price
Try Gumdale Merlot or Hardys Merlot. So far I like Gumdale the best out of the three for the price range for a merlot under $10.00. This is a nice wine to have on hand at the house, nice for a gift.
This is a great, reliable Merlot that is always great and the price can't be beat! Plenty of aroma and smooth.
