From the Producer

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.

Critical Acclaim

VN92 Vinous Aug 2016

"Rousseau’s 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Roi Soleil offers lovely depth and complexity in a deceptively linear, mid-weight style. Beams of tannin and acidity will give the wine much of its personality, but overall this is a relatively friendly young Cabernet Sauvignon (for Mt. Veeder) that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Hints of game, smoke and tobacco add further shades of complexity as the wine continues to open up in the glass." (92 pts.)

WS93 Wine & Spirits August 1, 2015

"A tough young mountain wine, this grows at 2,000 feet, the 25-year-old vines at Godspeed Vineyard surrounded by the forests of Mount Veeder. Yannick Rousseau ferments it without adding yeast, which helps to capture the local microflora in the wine, bringing scents of moss, ferns, redwood bark and ripe green fig, all held in a brisk mouthful of flavor. The wine picks up energy as it takes on air, the flavors lengthening into crushed green peppercorn tannins, still fresh and saturated several days after the bottle is first opened. A satisfying cabernet to decant for braised lamb, or to cellar for several years." (93 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
