Jax Y3 Taureau Red
The name Taureau, was the name of the Jackson family’s prized bull, legendary for his feisty, high-kicking and vibrant personality. When perfecting this wine at their blending session, the JAX team concurred that the character of their infamous bull reflected the structure and elements of this indulgent red blend…and what a perfect tribute to their family ranching legend.
This wine is what one would expect with a name like Taureau. Ruby purple in color, with loads of black cherry and briary black currant fruit, the wine is meaty and refreshing, with hints of mocha and earth. A beautifully rich, concentrated, irresistible style of wine to drink casually or with serious cuisine. Approachable upon release and will cellar till 2022 and beyond.
90 PTS – ROBERT PARKER – “The 2015 Proprietary Red Blend Y3 Taureau is a deep purple-black color with warm plums, mulberries, and black cherries-scented nose with hints of spice box, cloves and aniseed plus a waft of thyme. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated on the firm palate, it shows lovely vivacity and freshness on the long finish.”
