Wine Tasting: Yellow Tail 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon

Yellow Tail
(Southeastern Australia)
2003 Cabernet Sauvignon
Rating: 5/10

Do not pair this wine with a tomato-based pasta sauce. The result was an odd, almost unbearable sour finish that overweighed any of the wine's mild flavor. Paired against a sharp cheddar the wine fared much better. It was still mild but aeration drew out just the slightest hint of flavor. The sour finish disappeared entirely with the different food choice.

I will reevaluate this wine tonight.

$5 on sale at Pavillions.
