I've had YT Shiraz at several parties. Morbid curiosity... To me it tastes confected and cloyingly sweet.

Yes, Bob, I will try a YT Riesling and/or Shiraz (I'm on a Riesling "kick" right now) and will send you my notes--which may be laughable, at best, but I'll give it a shot

I appreciate everyone's candidness in response to my questions; it seems, once again, the YT is generally unfavorable--I guess I'll find out why, if at all, for myself very soon! If it's the sweetness and blah-ness of the wine that repels most, then I likely won't be able to pick up on that too much; but, I have been drinking some "real" rieslings lately, so who knows. . . .
Robin: thanks for the link; an interesting read
Haven't tried anything but the blend, but the Shiraz is a little more than barely acceptable, a little sweet, but quite a nice food match for a wide range of foods, when wine isn't a star of the meal.
