Jax Y3 Taureau 2015
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.
Wine AdvocateComposed of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 5% Zinfandel, the 2015 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.
Wine EnthusiastThis rendition of half Merlot with smaller amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel is moderate in structure and ripe in plum and dark cherry. Soft and smooth, it's an easy wine to share and enjoy in its simplicity.
