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 complex personality of their infamous bull reflected the complex structure and elements of this indulgent red blend... and what a perfect tribute to their family ranching legend. Reflecting the dominating character of Taureau, this wine boasts incredible purple fruit colors, flavors of blackberry, black cherry and red on the palate, and all supported by polished tannins. Composed of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 5% Zinfandel, the 2016 Proprietary Red Blend Y3 Taureau is a deep purple-black color with a 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.
