Yorkville Cellars Malbec 2007

“If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”  —  Jim Rohn

Yorkville Cellars Malbec 2007 is an unusual wine, as there are very few malbecs grown in California.  Wine Harlots think it’s unusually delicious too.  It’s a dense ruby color, with great viscosity.  The wine is intensely aromatic, with berry and spicy scents on the nose, with blackberry, boysenberry and earthiness on the palate, with an enduring finish.  Give it an hour to breathe.  We suggest pairing this with Wine & Walnut’s Steak with Parmesan Butter, Balsamic Glaze & Arugula.

The details: 13.7% alcohol.  Cork closure.  Appellation: Mendocino County.  The grapes are from CCOF certified organic vineyards.  The retail price is $25 USD and available from the Yorkville Cellars website.  This was a media sample generously provided by the winery.

The music match is “Ain’t That Unusual” by the Goo Goo Dolls from the album A Boy Named Goo.  Don’t settle.  Take a risk.  Dare to be different.  Drink unusual and have an extraordinary experience.
