2017 Y. Rousseau Son of a Butcher | California 750ml

45% Tannat 25% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot 15% Cabernet Franc

SOB shows the softer side of Yannick's favorite red grape - Tannat - and its amazing potential as a blending variety. The deep, dark, spicy bouquet revolves around blackberries, white pepper, plums, violets, dry leaves with notes of licorice and roasted coffee. Supple and full-bodied, it's an unmistakable California resident, rich and with youthful vibe, but the one who doesn't forget its French heritage. Aged for 18 months in 15% new and 85% neutral French oak barrels. | Y. Rousseau Wines

Yannick Rousseau takes his deep connection to his heritage in the Gascony region of Southwest France and honors it with his artisan approach to winemaking in California. Each wine, from his dry and crisp Colombard to his award winning Tannats has a uniquely soulful expression of place and craft. The Son of a Butcher red blend, a nod to his his father and grandfather who were artisan butchers, comes in with a dark core and saturated color that gives way to crunchy and bright red fruits, loads of ripe berries and plums. There's a playful nature to the mid-palate - a whiff of woodsmoke - that moves toward funk and fusion on the finish. Beefy, grippy, and full with tannin. | Falling Bright
