Located at the Southern end of the Anderson Valley, Yorkville Cellars is entitled to the Yorkville Highlands rather than Anderson Valley appellation. And unlike other wineries in the Valley, who now lean heavily toward Pinot reds and Alsatian whites, Yorkville uses only Bordeaux varietal grapes. This Hi-Rollr Red, intended for every day drinking, is comprised of 44% Malbec, 35% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.
It is a delightful dinner wine, bright and fresh. Malbec dark cherry, Merlot red cherry and the red raspberry structure of a Loire Cab Franc. Not to mention the floral lilt of Petit Verdot. Earth, herbs and berries. Fills the mouth with racy flavors. This is really not very Claret like at all but very enjoyable.,
