Yellow Tail Shiraz 2010

Yellow Tail's shiraz carried my highest hopes for its 2010 red range.  The aroma though was a little sweet smelling, with notes of baked plums, leaving me to fear residual sugar on the palate again.  And on the palate, there it was - that sweet flavour on the tip of the tongue.  Fruity but sweet.  Not for me.  79 points (6.4/10)
