Y Rousseau Wines is an artisan and family owned winery. Yannick Rousseau, founder and winemaker, makes wines of great personality from Mount Veeder, Napa Valley and Russian River Valley.

The Renaissance of Colombard in America is one of Yannick's mission; as well as creating distinctive and food friendly wines from outstanding Mount Veeder vineyards.

2015 Old Vines COLOMBARD - RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
Yannick’s favorite white variety shows a new facet in 2015. The season was dry and hot, and so the wine is a little richer and fuller-bodied compared to some of the previous vintages. Its aromas of peaches, pineapple, anjou pear, and freesia instantly transport us to the pool, seaside, or a shady garden on a hot summer day. The palate is unmistakably Colombard - those of you who have tried our Colombards before will recognize its savory, mineral and briny notes and balanced acidity. All of this makes Colombard a really food-friendly wine. We love it with oysters, and with other seafood, fresh or hot from the grill, and also salads, chicken, and goat cheese.
  $20.00
2015 ROSE OF TANNAT - SOLANO COUNTY
This rosé shows a beautiful salmon color, and a clean, uplifting nose of fresh strawberries, watermelon, and rose petals. We also smell some herbaceous notes, as if someone crushed dried flower-buds. On the mouth, the wine is refreshing, mouthwatering and quite robust to complement a variety of dishes, from a creamy risotto to spicy grilled shrimp, crisp chicken with roasted vegetables, wood-oven pizza, or a mushroom quiche.
  $24.00
2013 MERLOT Pépé - MOON MOUNTAIN DISTRICT, CAVEDALE VINEYARDS
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 bleuberries 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.
  $50.00
2012 CABERNET SAUVIGNON Le Roi Soleil - MOUNT VEEDER, NAPA VALLEY

Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Roi Soleil is a classic and distinctive representation of Mountain grown Napa Valley Cabernet and of the excellent 2012 vintage. It shows a lush mouthfeel with bold tannic structure and a great balance between richness and age ability characters. High mountain fruit brings deep and dense black fruit and foresty notes. The sweet, refined roasted French oak adds layers and complexity to the mouth feel. Very long finish and great aging potential
Sold Out, may be available at the winery. Please contact us for more details.
2012 CHARDONNAY Milady - MOUNT VEEDER, NAPA VALLEY
Our Milady 2012 is a beautiful and hedonistic expression of Mount Veeder Chardonnay. It reveals a charming, and complex nose with subtle aromas of honey suckle, quince jam, hazelnut, lychee and crème brûlée. On the palate, it offers finesse and balanced acidity. The wine is textured and creamy from its aging on lees. Milady 2012 is a harmonious beauty that represents the quintessence of Mount Veeder fruit combined with Yannick's burgundian approach to Chardonnay winemaking.
Sold Out, may be available at the winery. Please contact us for more details.
2012 MERLOT Pépé - SONOMA VALLEY, CAVEDALE VINEYARDS
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 shared it with all the family. Pépé grapes come from the organically farmed Cavedale Vineyards located on the western slopes of Mount Veeder at 2000’ elevation in the Moon Mountain District of Sonoma.
2012 TANNAT -  RUSSIAN VALLEY
Tannat’s roots reach through the same French countryside as Yannick’s. As one of the Southwest of France’s hallmark red beauties, it hails from the Madiran region near the Pyrénées mountains.
Sold Out, may be available at the winery. Please contact us for more details.
2012 TANNAT ASV, THE MUSKETEER

This is the second vintage for our Reserve Tannat from this high elevation (2,400’) single vineyard. Vibrant, inky-dark color with purple hue. The nose opens on lush, ripe black raspberry fruits and dark roast coffee notes. Earthy undertones intermingle with spices and plush cherries in the mouth. The palate is loaded with dark ripe berries, hints of warm spices and espresso. This is an elegant wine, bold, intense and dense, memorably balanced with a persistent finish. Enjoy now decanted, or age for 15 to 20 years.
