Based in Napa Valley, Y. Rousseau Wines is the realization of a dream that began in the South-West of France and evolved as Yannick Rousseau, French native, founder and winemaker, followed his heart and passion for winemaking.
Winery Notes: "45% Tannat 25% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot 15% Cabernet Franc. Son Of a Butcher 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."
