Y. Rousseau 2013 Merlot Pepe Cavedale

This wine is named after Yannick’s grandfather, Pépé, because Merlot is his favorite variety. Pépé used to make 5 to 6 barrels of Merlot every year in his garage and share it with all the family. The grapes for this Merlot come from the organically farmed Cavedale Vineyards located on the western slopes of Mount Veeder at 2000 ft. elevation in the Moon Mountain District AVA of Sonoma.

Tasting Notes

This is an uncommon Merlot of exceptional intensity and purity built with harmonious balance and structure. The nose is crowded with sugarplums, violet petals and a freshly opened pack of fig newtons. The flavors of strawberry rhubarb pie slip into blueberries dusted in fine black pepper. The aromas and flavors continue to evolve and build the longer the wine stays opened. Our 2013 Merlot will drink beautifully now with a decant, while only improving gracefully over many years to come.
