Am I the only one who thinks every day should be a wine day? It doesn’t even have to be after a stressful day, or just to unwind. Just wine. I’m not a lush, except maybe once a month – but I do enjoy wine. Between Tess and I we have all the varietals covered. She digs red wines and I’m head over heels for white’s. Moscato and bubbly are a mutual favorite. So, imagine our glee when we opened up a box full of yellow tail wine.
All the bases were covered – Sangria (which is red wine based), Moscato, Bubbles, Big Bold Red. We were definitely in our happy place.
What do we think of these yellow tail wines?
yellow tail Sangria – Taking on the Spanish traditions, this Sangria is a lovely mix of red wine and citrus. The orange rind and red berry notes dance on the palette while a mild hint of alcohol shimmies through. The sangria isn’t overly sweet which is a nice quality, since the red wine plays through but doesn’t overpower.
yellow tail Sangria Pairing Suggestion: While Sangria is perfect on its own, pairing with chicken and shellfish fresh off the grill is a fool proof pairing.
yellow tail Moscato – At first taste this Moscato has an acidic bite only to be followed by hints of peach and tropical fruit. There is a light, airy mildly complex sweetness to this varietal. I really enjoyed the light fizz that accompanied the wine.
yellow tail Moscato Pairing Suggestion: Moscato is traditionally a dessert wine so pairing with a fruit infused cheesecake seems fitting. Also, consider serving this moscato with a glazed ham so sweet and salty play into each other.
yellow tail Bubbles – Full bodied flavor paired with a fizzy texture make this a wonderful social varietal for any celebration. The bold flavors of tropical fruit with undertones of lime and hints of flora pair well with the creamy fizz. Bubbles has a soft sweetness and a crisp finish that is truly satisfying.
yellow tail Bubbles Pairing Suggestion: Bubbles would go perfectly with a fondue set up. Meats, cheeses, chocolates – great pairings!
yellow tail Big Bold Red – Aptly named, Big Bold Red is just that. A full bodied red wine with bold raspberry and strawberry flavors playing upon the notes of chocolate and espresso.
yellow tail Big Bold Red Pairing Suggestion: I’d suggest pairing Big Bold Red with a hearty dish like Beef Stew, Brisket or Spaghetti. They also go incredibly well with these Cheddar Bay knock off biscuits!
