Tasting Notes
Deep purple color. Bright, fruity, spicy aromas of blueberry cobbler and milk chocolate bar with a silky, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a sleek, intriguing, medium-long spiced cherries and apples finish with silky tannins and light oak. A toothsome and satisfying malbec.

Vineyard Notes
Our Rennie Organic Vineyard was planted in 1990. It features a split canopy, quadrilateral cordon with a 9’ x 6’ spacing. It rests on benchlands at about 1,000 ft. elevation with a southern exposure. we now have now have three clones: FPS #9 (COT clone 180 from France), #595 EV (originated in the town of Cahors), FPS #4 from Bordeaux. We’ve found that each of the clones contributes a range of aromas and flavors thereby adding increased complexity.

Winemaker Notes
Harvested on Oct 18h, grapes were gently crushed, and cold soaked for three days before innoculation with Assmanhausen yeast. Fermentation was held at a constant 80°F for 11 days and then the wine was gently pressed and racked to French oak barrels for ageing. After 17 months the wines were settled, fined, and gently filtered before bottling. Lovely now, or hold up to 3 to 7 years.
Other Notes
Yorkville Cellars is located in Mendocino County, 100 miles north of San Francisco. Our tasting room is on Highway 128, a picturesque road that winds past vineyards, sheep ranches and apple orchards before plunging through the redwood forest to emerge at the Mendocino coastline. Our organic vineyards have been certified since 1986, so pesticides or chemicals are not used. Every day is Earth Day here and you will find the only winery to grow and produce all eight of the main Bordeaux grapes each as a varietal wine: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere It would be a privilege if you would come visit us for a tour of our organic vineyards and a free tasting when you have the opportunity. Ask us about our Hi-Rollrs Wine Club and its many benefits for wine lovers. Over the last decade we are proud to have won 446 medals in major wine competitions in California.
