Yellow Tail Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Yellow Tail's cabernet sauvignon has an attractive aroma of black fruits, with a touch of leaves.  So a pretty good start for this devotee of cabernet.  The palate though disappointed - it seemed sweet, too sweet, on the tongue.  Possible residual sugar in the blend.  A dessert style cabernet perhaps?  Not for me.  76 points (6.1/10)
