Jax Vineyards "Y3 - Taureau Red" Napa Valley 2014

45% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10% Zinfandel. From the Jax Estate vineyard at the base of Mt St Helena, northern end of Napa Valley. Boasts very ripe fruit, bordering on berry jam + dark spices, vanilla and toast from barrel, cocoa. It's straightforward, easy-drinking and simple to understand and like. "The Y3 symbol was the cattle symbol used on our grandparents cattle ranch, Yarrayne. Trent and I wanted to pay tribute to three generation as land-tilling entrepreneurs." Kimberly Jackson, co-owner "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."
