(415) 522-1928 St. Helena, CA 94574
United States

YORK CREEK VINEYARDS runs up and over the crest of the mountains to the west of the town of St. Helena, in a lush and beautiful area long known as "Spring Mountain." Wine grapes have been grown here for more than one hundred years, and we have vines in both Napa and Sonoma counties. At least twenty-four tree species are native here; an extraordinary richness of flora perhaps unequaled anywhere in California's Coast Range. – Description from Dragac

  • York Creek Vineyards Cabernet Franc Spring Mountain District 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Lacks the body I had come to expect from a Cab, even a Franc. Bouquet deepens with time though, as well as the taste; 45 minutes or more. Blended fruits leave a pleasant after taste albeit of short/moderate duration. Read More

  • Hi Guys:In my ongoing saga of trying to learn how to cook, I'm planning on giving lobster thermidor a whirl soon. I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas?

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

  • Sean Sullivan recently published and updated a list of his top 100 or so wines of 2012, with predictable results. Cayuse, Quilceda Creek, Leonetti all occupy the top 3 spots, followed by a few mid tier standards like Betz, Reynvaan, Maison Bleue, Grammercy. Well, I should say I'm just starting to get to know these names and also starting to buy ...

  • Must admit I'm becoming a convert to this wine, I know it seems to get a lot of negative press having a reputation as a lowly ' Workhorse ' grape. but I enjoy the richness, tannins that grip you and the dense meaty flavours. I've recently had some very good ones, notably .........Paul Mas Estate Carignan Vieilles Vignes Savignac Vineyard 2010 Pa...
