Wal-Mart wine review with Yellow Tail Wine and JustJess
Can you think of the last WINE commercial you’ve seen? Yellow Tail wine is the only wine commercial that comes to my mind.
They have done a wonderful job spreading the word about their wine from commercials to billboards, so I figured it was about time to try it out when I saw it in my local Wal-Mart for only $5.97.
I went with their 2008 Shiraz-Cabernet blend, and this Australian wine is a mouthful. The acidity really hits you right off the bat, with notes of ripe raspberry and plum. The deep berry flavors and lingering finish makes this a great pairing with strong blue or Gruyere cheese, hearty beef stews, and even spaghetti & meatballs, as they say on their site.
Their site is very informational and has their recent commercials listed & fun facts, such as how they got their name while looking up the word kangaroo and saw in parentheses next to wallaby the word yellow tail. They also list the nutritional value for one glass of their wine. I think that’s big. How many times do you see a new beer commercial claiming to be lower in calories than some other beer? Alot !
Now, why don’t we see that with wine ?! I think the wine world has some stepping up to do. Yellow Tail is definitely carving the right path.
Watch Wine Channel TV in action to see if this blend matches up to the great marketing Yellow Tail has to offer!
