Sensorial, high energy all around trail wine. jarred jams and spices with wax peppers
Yorkville Cellars is in Yorkville Highlands, Mendocino County, CA, 1.5hrs north of Sonoma. This vineyard is farmed by Ed Wallo and fully organic from its inception. It features purely Bordeaux varietals. Planted in the early 2000's.
Produced at the Coturri Winery. The wine co-ferments in two batches Merlot/Malbec and Cab Franc/Petit Verdot/Cab Sauv. Manual punchdowns and gently pressed to neutral barrel. The wine is only racked once to tank and bottled with no fining, filtering or SO2.
Being such a large Bordeaux style blend, this wine is a shapeshifter; capable of expressing any of those varietals powerfully. At times, the wine shows how they can all come together beautifully.
