Y. Rousseau Tannat 2014

Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California

$28.75 / each


Tannat, the brawny grape of Madiran in southwest France is not typically seen in California. This rare example made by French winemaker Yannick Rousseau, however, is exceptional, and shows great potential for this grape variety in Sonoma's Russian River Valley. Silky tannins and vivid acidity build an excellent structural base for this wine, which yields gorgeous black cherry, wild blueberry, bittersweet chocolate and graphite notes. Super stylish and full of finesse, this was aged in 40% new French oak for 18 months.
