2021 Y. Rousseau Son of a Butcher | California 750ml

30% Tannat 20% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot 10% Malbec 5% Cabernet Franc 5% Petite Sirah

Son of a Butcher shows the softer side of Yannick's favorite red grape, Tannat, and its amazing potential as a blending variety. Deep black cherry color. Bright, complex, generous and profound with notes of baked blackberry pie, dry sage, white pepper, licorice, medium roast coffee, forest floor and subtle French oak. Supple attack, delicate roundness, full-bodied, offering sweet spices, pure dark berries, silky tannins and fresh long finish. It's an unmistakable California resident, rich, juicy, and a youthful vibe, but this one doesn't forget its French heritage... Aged for 18 months in 20% new and 80% 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 Tannat 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
