Review of York Creek 2007 MXB

Happy Hour: York Creek 2007 MXB

Last night I attended an interesting wine tasting hosted by Nirvino — the social networking drink-rating website and awesome wine app for the iPhone. The wines were all from wineries who source the grapes in vineyards, but make the wines in urban areas like San Francisco and Oakland. My favorite wine was a provocative red from York Creek, the MXB Zinfandel Blend. The MXB stands for "mixed black" and refers to an old California-style field blend of red grapes like Barbera, Grenache, Carignane, etc. The 2007 MXB is a seductive wine with a smooth finish, jammy flavor, and deep, dark color. It's a rich mountain wine that's easy to drink and even easier to like.

While I sipped it solo, it would pair wonderfully with everything from a juicy cheeseburger to a comforting plate of macaroni and cheese. Do you enjoy red wine blends?
