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. Medium bodied, luscious and approachable, our 2016 Taureau Red Blend is in pitch-perfect balance. The supple, voluminous entry cascades into beautifully rich and integrated flavors of ripe raspberry, black plum and baking spices. This wine is a lovely blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah sourced exclusively from Napa Valley vineyards. Bottled unfiltered, and unfined.
Our fruit is handpicked, sorted and cold-soaked immediately after harvesting. Following fermention, this wine is aged in 40% new French oak. Offering dark, concentrated depth and character, this wine pairs with a broad range of foods from poultry, pasta and pizza to rich red meat dishes. We recommend opening the wine 30 minutes to an hour prior to consumption to allow aromatics to open and evolve.
