Yorkville Cellars Richard the Lion-Heart 2007

External Review:

A proprietor’s blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere. Featuring a succulent core of red fruit, bright acidity and lingering fine textured tannins with a note of cedar in the finish. Already displaying great balance and finesse, this wine will gain complexity with additional bottle age.

We are located in Mendocino County, 100 miles north of San Francisco.

This humble winery is devoted to honest winemaking, which shows in all of their wines. The clean tastes testify the organic nature of the winery. But even if you don't know all of that, the wines speak for themselves. Richard the Lion-hearted is a bold claret with delicate red fruits and a deep complexity that transforms the wine from big and powerful at times, to subtle and understated. Very smooth. Great with most red meats and could do well with pork.
